Final Exhortations from 1Thessalonians

This Word file outline examines 1Thessalonians 5:12-22 in an effort to better understand what the Holy Spirit and the apostle Paul thought was of paramount importance to the Thessalonians, and us, in preparation for heaven.

 

Found in the House of the Lord

This PowerPoint lesson takes a perhaps unusual approach.  It highlights items (things, individuals, and groups of people) that both should and shouldn't be in the Lord's house, but are, nonetheless, found there.
