Paul’s letter to the church in Thessalonica culminates with straightforward instructions for Christian living, including the kind of relationships that should be found within local congregations. To help churches display the Gospel, Alistair Begg delivers a series of challenges for pastors and elders, along with additional guidelines for congregations. As we see from Scripture’s direction, churches thrive when leaders are engaged with the right activities and members embrace the right attitudes.
12We ask you, brothers, to respect those who labor among you and are over you in the Lord and admonish you, 13and to esteem them very highly in love because of their work. Be at peace among yourselves.
