In the section Living Word we want to provide sermon outlines to help pastors in the preparation for their important and central task of preaching. We try to provide help in the exposition and the application of the text. This week: 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18.
Faithfulness to the Word will bring bonds, but the Word itself can never be bound nor will it ever be bound. When the world attacks God’s people, it is not because it hates the people first of all, but because it hates the Word of God. It hates the people as bearers of the Word. Let the Word go and the world will let you go.
This section has articles specifically for youth. The Lord promised that the outpouring of his Spirit will affect even the youth in a wonderful way (Acts 2:17). Therefore, youth will also be interested to learn what it means to be a Christian, a follower of Jesus Christ.
You can find material here that is suitable for Bible study. The purpose of these articles is to give an overview of longer Bible passages, and is suitable for personal or group Bible study. Some of the Bible studies have questions that can be used for discussion.
