1 Thessalonians 3

  1. In what ways did Paul show his love and concern for the Thessalonian Christians?
    When, like Paul, we pray for our fellow-Christians, what does his example suggest that we ought to pray for them?
  2. What is taught here concerning suffering for Christ?
    Cf. John 16:33; 2 Tim. 3:12. To what danger does such an experience expose us (cf. 1 Pet. 5:8, 9), and how are they to be successfully faced?
  3. Verses 11-13. How are love and sanctification linked in these verses?
    Does this teach us anything important about what is involved in becoming holy?
