Looking and listening for God in Scripture is one of the commitments of A Methodist Way of Life.
Each week's studies are written by volunteers across the Connexion (you can read the author's biography after each study). They follow the lectionary of the Methodist Prayer Handbook. If you are interested in writing for A Word in Time, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
As you learned from us how you ought to live and to please God (as, in fact, you are doing), you should do so more and more. For you know what instructions we gave you through the Lord Jesus. For this is the will of God, your sanctification. (vs 1-3)
1 Thessalonians 4:1-12
We always pray for you, asking that our God will make you worthy of his call and will fulfil by his power every good resolve and work of faith, so that the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you, and you in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ. (vs 11-12)
2 Thessalonians 1:1-12
As to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered together to him, we beg you, brothers and sisters, not to be quickly shaken in mind or alarmed, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as though from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord is already here. Let no one deceive you in any way. (vs 1-3a)
2 Thessalonians 2:1-3a, 13-17
