Pastor Ron introduces us to Paul’s ministry in Thessalonica as he begins a new sermon series entitled “A Better Life Now”.
1. Suffering and Death were great hurdles or obstacles for the Jews to believe Jesus was Messiah. What are some of the common hurdles or obstacles for people today to believe Jesus is who He says He is?
2. How does the gospel trouble you?
3. Jealousy was a problem here. (Note: Prov.14:30; James 3:16: Mark 7:22) Is jealousy an issue in your circle of acquaintances? How can we curb it?
4. Are there similarities in the rejection of the gospel by the Thessalonian community and our community? How do we respond?
