The primary goal of this week's lesson is observation. It's amazing how this simple Bible study skill can yield such great results. Taking the time to "observe" the chapter and really see it's structure and contents helps us handle God's Word accurately. It builds a reverence for the Scriptures and gives us confidence as we study. I hope you'll grow to love this process as much as I do! Prayerfully seek the Lord's help as you do!
Every book of the Bible turns out to be our favorite when we dig into God's Word. The first letter to the Thessalonians is no exception. This church was near and dear to Paul's heart and it comes through in every verse. He loved these dear believers! Learn how to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord the way the Thessalonians did. Ask the Lord to help you faithfully complete the whole series. Maybe encourage a friend to do the studies with you.

One of the more well-known verses from this chapter is 2 Corinthians 13:5 where we urged to "examine ourselves." This is always a crucial component in any believer's life, yet it holds pertinent value as we come to this last lesson in this particular study. Examine yourself. How have you been changed, challenged, convicted, or comforted in this study? I'd love to know! Please email and share what the Lord has taught you!

It's never fun to defend yourself, and Paul isn't thrilled about having to do so, but he moves ahead for the good of the Corinthian church. Paul provides us with a great example of speaking truthfully when attacked, yet doing so without boasting. We'll also learn about Paul's most embarrassing moment.
