Hello, friends! Today we will be wrapping up our time in 2 Thessalonians. As we finish up these letters, I hope that you have been able to take the truths gleaned from the Scriptures and apply them to your own lives. Don’t forget to join us this Sunday at 9:00 or 10:45 gathering.
CONNECT (Take time to write down responses to these questions or discuss in your group)
_ What is one area in which you have been convicted to grow during our time in the Thessalonians?
_ What is one way the Lord is impacting the life of someone you are walking with (to help grow in or discover Jesus)?
PRAY_ Take some time to thank and praise God for who He is, to pray for those you are walking with, for the needs you/group are facing, and for the Spirit to highlight truth as you read.
DISCOVER [2 Thessalonians 3:18] The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all.
