On Sunday, October 27, 2019, Matthew Williams preached the message, “Your Faith is Not in Vain” as part of our current series, Living with the End in View from 2 Thessalonians 1:4-12. Click here for projection from the message. Below are a few discussion questions for Community Group or personal study this week. To listen to this message again, click here.
  1. Read 2 Thessalonians 1:4-12. Do you see yourself as someone who is facing persecution, or do you think that persecution is what happens to other believers in other countries? Do you minimize or dismiss what you experience and not see how Jesus can bring hope and help?
  2. Read 1 Peter 4:12-14. Matthew said that supernatural perseverance on the part of a suffering Christian is a living and breathing invasion of the justice of God in a world of pain. Do you see your endurance in suffering as proof that God sees you and is upholding you? Do you find that hard to believe, and if so, why?
  3. 2 Thessalonians 1:6-9 reminds us that the justice of God has a finish line and His judgment is real and eternal. Is there a situation you are experiencing (or have experienced in the past) that this reminder brings comfort to?
  4. Matthew reminded us that the great joy of heaven is being with Jesus. Do you look forward to that day, or are you more concerned with avoiding hell?
