Discussion for 1 Thessalonians 3

    Paul's burden was to see the church at Thessalonica grow in their faith and become mature believers which is only perfected through love. The world's definition of love is emotional and twisted through the lies of the Devil. True love Corinthians 15 rejoiceth in the truth. May the Lord help us to pursue Biblical love which will mature us in the faith.
  • BSP
    Verse 12~An increase in love was being emphasized here and that is something that we all want to contribute to today.

    Ephesians 1:7 7 In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace. God looks at us as thou we never sin. But the flesh will still sin.

    Ray? There are many Churches that love one another,they talk about The Bible,Way of Salvation.Do different things,thinking they are Saved and are more Lost then The World. One Big Social Club. Some on this site have lunch with The Wolf. Only by The Blood of The Lamb and The Word of God,We can Win The Battle:Ephesians 10:18. It's getting harder to find a Body of True Believers. Preach The Blood
  • Ray321
    1 Thessalonians 3:12 And the Lord make you to increase and abound in love one toward another, and toward all men, even as we do toward you. If we get loving one another and share the gospel, we won't have to worry about wolf's in sheep clothing. Let us increase our Love and Faith in Christ Jesus.

    Julie, Acts 20:29-30, grievous Wolf's and religious perverts are to split up the flock, as Paul states. Inevitable, considering sinful man. 1 Timothy 4:4, forbidding to eat certain meats and forbidding to marry. We all should understand these things, having watched religious goings in. GBU
