Belief And Behavior, Volume 1
The Thessalonian church held a tender place in the heart of the Apostle Paul. In this expositional study of Paul’s first letter to the Thessalonians, we see a paradigm for pastoral ministry, emphasizing the life-changing content of the Gospel and the concerns of Paul’s heart for the healthy spiritual growth of the individuals that make up the church body. Alistair Begg teaches from this rich resource to help us develop an understanding of the dynamics of the Christian life, both in what we believe and how we are to behave.
Paul was confident in the Thessalonians’ standing in Christ, and in volume one of this series, we see his deep thankfulness and affection for these young believers. Here we see a pastor’s careful treatment of the Gospel along with a deep love for the Church. When Christian ministry strikes this balance, the Church is strengthened and looks to those in leadership with respect and in anticipation of teaching, care, and prayer.
