The Rest of the Story
A Study Through the Books of 1 & 2 Thessalonians
Comfort in Crisis
#21 - 2 Thessalonians 2:13-17 • September 25, 2016 • John Anderson
Not a single one of us is immune to trials, trouble or difficulties. But in those times we often want to change our circumstances, when God is out to change us. The Apostle Paul gives us great comfort for the crisis in this passage from 2 Thessalonians.
Everybody Calm Down
#20 - 2 Thessalonians 2:1-12 • September 18, 2016 • John Anderson
Paul is writing to a young church at Thessalonica that was being "shaken" and "troubled" by false reports concerning the coming of the Lord. We can benefit by his encouragement to them in the day we are living in, as we see world events racing toward the end of the age.
The Church that made Jesus Proud
#18 - 2 Thessalonians 1:1-5 • August 7, 2016 • John Anderson
Would Jesus be proud of your church? In 2 Thessalonians, chapter 1, Paul commends this congregation at Thessalonica for their growth in the Lord despite great persecution. Great churches are made up of great Christians!
#17 - 1 Thessalonians 5:23-28 • July 31, 2016 • John Anderson
What do we do "until then" - until Christ returns for His church? Paul gives specific instructions to the church at Thessalonica about what to do while we're waiting for the coming of the Lord, and they're still speaking to our lives today!
