Title: Healthy Relationships

Text: 1 Thessalonians 5:12-22,27

  1. Read 1 Thessalonians 5:12-22. Why does Paul address the church as brothers and sisters five times in this passage?  What are the implications of this pattern?
  2. How is leadership a Spiritual gift according to Romans 12:3-8? Are leaders a gift from God to the church? How are they to lead? Study these passages using the word “diligent” Luke 1:39 haste, Romans 12:11 zeal, 2 Corinthians 8:7-8 complete earnestness; Jude 1:3 eager.
  3. There are four commands in 5:14-15. Are these given to the leaders or the Body? Which of these do you find most neglected in the church today?  Why?
  4. How is God’s will described in 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, 4:3 and 1 Timothy 2:3-4? What sequential order would you put these in? 
  5. What is contempt in 5:20? How do we show contempt for God’s Word today?  How is this like the contempt shown to Jesus as predicted in Psalm 118:22-23? 
  6. Why did Paul link together God’s will and God’s word in 5:16-22?
