Study 7 of 13 on 1 and 2 Thessalonians
Scriptural Basis: 1 Thess. 4:1–12; Matt. 25:34–46; Gen. 39:9; John 13:34, 35. Key Text: “God did not call us to be impure, but to live a holy life” (1 Thess. 4:7, NIV). 1. We are told in 1 Thessalonians 4:7 to live a “holy life.” What is your understanding of what this means? 2. There is hardly a letter written by the apostle Paul that does not include a warning against sexual immorality. Why is this such a recurrent topic? 3. Why can sexual immorality and genuine love not reside together? 4. How can Christians embrace God’s will to be sexually pure without the idea that sex is dirty or unholy? 5. In what sense is the motive of pleasing God a better guiding principle than simply giving someone a list of rules to follow? 6. In 1 Thessalonians Paul frequently uses the phrase “more and more” to describe growth in character and Christian behavior. What can churches do to encourage this kind of “more and more”?
