- Matthew taught that God’s sanctifying work is personal, holistic, and necessary. Define each of these attributes and break down how they are at play in the Christian’s life.
- Explain the ineffectiveness of “pressure campaigns” when attempting to minister to one another. What is a better approach to declaring 1 Thessalonians 5:24 to each other?
- How will you know if abiding trust is in your heart? What fruit will be present? Consider your position as a friend, coworker, spouse, or parent. Are patience, joy, humility, and gratitude visibly present in your life to those around you?
- What is the significance in the way that Paul closes this letter? Consider your study of the book as a whole over the past months. What are some of your biggest takeaways from 1 Thessalonians? What are you looking forward to studying further as we move into 2 Thessalonians?
