1 Thessalonians 2:1-12
The church is called to be encouragers. Although the Apostle Paul was extremely pleased with the “model” church in Thessalonica, he was also a realist. He knew the kind of pressures and resistance the church faced. So, he writes this letter to encourage them, so that they don’t fall into the same kinds of traps that other congregations have fallen into. In this sermon, we look at Paul’s example in how to be an encourager.
