The Apostle Paul came to Thessalonica and had a very short time there to preach the gospel and plant a church before the enemies of Christ started a riot and drove Paul from the city. In order to establish this fledgling church in a strong faith, he wrote two epistles filled with timeless words— 1 & 2 Thessalonians. They teach us what the genuine Christian life looks like in the midst of a hostile world filled with spiritual enemies. Paul also gives us vital information about the second coming of Christ and the end of the world. A careful study of these epistles will result in a rich blessing for any who embrace them by faith!
