ENLARGED FAITH 2Thessalonians 1:1-4 Download this Bible Study
** It is good to be together again for the express purpose of studying the Word of God. Last week we enjoyed our final study in 1Thessalonians and I hope that you have drawn closer to the Lord through an increased understanding of that epistle.
** Today we are beginning our study of Paul's second letter to the Thessalonians, which will bless our time together over the next eight weeks. In the opening four verses, the apostle begins to encourage these Thessalonians (and us as well) by showing them the impact of their "Enlarged Faith". We would do well to learn from their example, that our faith may grow to the glory of God. Let's read our passage together, as we prepare our hearts for the Word of God.
