Wesley's Notes for 1 Thessalonians 5:12


5:12 Know them that, Labour among you: Are over you in the Lord: Admonish you. Know - See, mark, take knowledge of them and their work. Sometimes the same person may both labour, that is, preach; be over, or govern; and admonish the flock by particular application to each: sometimes two or more different persons, according as God variously dispenses his gifts. But O, what a misery is it when a man undertakes this whole work without either gifts or graces for any part of it! Why, then, will he undertake it? for pay? What! will he sell both his own soul and all the souls of the flock? What words can describe such a wretch as this? And yet even this may be an honourable man!

Discussion for 1 Thessalonians 5

    On verse 22-Abstain from the appearance of evil. Don't touch it, don't get close to it, have nothing to do with it. Turn from it and run as fast as you can in the other direction. You will reap what you sow and you will lie in the bed you make. God does not want us to sin and knows sin better than anyone. We need to listento Him and obey him.

    God is great and greatly to be praised!!! I have found this to be true. The key to victory in our lives is to give praise regardless of the situation. If we can focus our eyes on Him through the darkness His light will shine. I have learnt to live a life of praise and thanks giving and it works. When praises go up the blessing comes down because He is faithful who has promised. We are created to praise Him. Glory to the Most High King.
