2Thessalonians, Chapter One, Lesson One

ENLARGED FAITH            Page 6

EXTRICATE

** What did we see in today's passage which we are to notice in the lives of other believers?

V.3 - "Enlarged Faith", the growth of the faith which belonged to those living in Thessalonica.

V.3 - Love toward one another which grows ever greater.

V.4 - The perseverance and faith of Christians who experience difficult trials.

DELINEATE

** What are we supposed to do once we have observed these things in the lives of other believers?

1) Give thanks to God! It is His work! (V.3)
2) Tell others about it, so we can encourage everyone who involved. (V.4)

EVALUATE

** If we wish to experience this "Enlarged Faith", how should I view the trials which the Lord sends my way?

Remember that God is faithful to not over test us and that His grace is always sufficient for the
need. (1Corinthians 10:13 and 2Corinthians 12:9-10)

** Is it possible to completely miss what is going on in the lives of other Christians? How can I avoid missing so great an opportunity to encourage others?

Do not be self-centered, but become other-centered. cf. Philippians 2:3-4

ACTIVATE

** Would you take a moment right now and ask the Lord to make you more aware of others around you so that you might encourage them and give Him the glory due His name by recognizing His work in their lives. May we experience the "Enlarged Faith" which is available to us through the study of God's word.
