Paul's Top Ten List

Before the snow came and cancelled school and all activities this evening at the church, we were to conclude our Bible study of 1 Thessalonians  this evening. Nevertheless, here is the focus for this session we are missing with what we might call Paul's Top Ten List for the Church:

1. Respect your leaders.
2. Be at peace among yourselves.
3. Admonish the idlers, encourage the faint-hearted, help the weak, be patient with all.
4. Do not repay evil with evil, but always seek to do good to one another.
5. Rejoice always.
6. Pray without ceasing.
7. Give thanks in all circumstances.
8. Do not quench the spirit.
9. Do not despise the words of the prophets, but test everything.
10. Hold fast to what is good; abstain from every form of evil.
