Do you wonder whether you will be with Jesus after you die? When you are suffering, do you wonder if God has forgotten you? Would you like to be sure that your life is pleasing to the Lord? At times we all feel anxious and insecure about life - and about our faith. The Thessalonians were asking these questions, and Paul wrote 1 & 2 Thessalonians to help them find assurance. They can help you be certain as well. This revised LifeGuide Bible Study features additional questions for starting group discussions and for meeting God in personal reflection, together with expanded leader's notes and a "Now or Later" section in each study. 10 studies for individuals or groups.
When you suffer, do you wonder if God has forgotten you? Do you wonder whether you will be with Jesus after you die? Would you like to be sure that your life is pleasing to God? At times every Christian feels anxious or insecure about life--and about faith. The Thessalonians asked many of the questions you ask today, and Paul's letters helped them find assurance. In these studies on 1 & 2 Thessalonians, Donald Baker shows how Paul's answers can help you to be certain too. This LifeGuide Bible Study in IVP's revised format features questions for starting group discussions and for meeting God in personal reflection, as well as a new "Now or Later" section following each session to help you act on what you learn.
Baker is pastor of First Reformed Church of Doon, Iowa, and Bethel Reformed Church of Lester, Iowa. He formerly served as a staff member with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship.
