On Sunday, August 4, 2019, Matthew preached the message, “Loving His Bride” as part of our current series, Living with the End in View from 1 Thessalonians 2:17-3:13. Click here for a PDF of the projection from the meeting and See below for a few discussion questions for Community Group or personal study this week. To listen to other messages from this series, visit our Audio Resources page.

Discussion Questions:

  1. Read aloud these sections of the passage (2:17-20, 3:1-5, 3:11-13) and then talk about how Paul models this affectionate desire for their spiritual welfare.  

  1. What is the “faith” in the readers that Paul was eager to hear about and encourage?  How can we encourage someone’s faith in the midst of his/her afflictions?  What are some ways we can be involved in promoting and encouraging the faith (spiritual health and welfare) of the Christians around us? 

  1. How would you overcome selfishness to have this deep love for the brothers/sisters? What holds you back?   

  1. Tell about a recent example how someone loved you and encouraged you to have faith towards God. 

  1. Where is Paul’s confidence as he prays for the readers in 3:11-13?  What does he mean that God “may establish your hearts blameless in holiness before our God and Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus with all his saints?”
