Chantelle du Plessis, Heilbron, Free State, South Africa   ...   Email chantz.duplessis@gmail.com Book of 1 and 2 Tessalonians    1.1 Tess 1:1-2” 1 Thessalonians 1:1-2  Paul, and Silvanus, and Timotheus, unto the church of the Thessalonians which is in God the Father and in the Lord Jesus Christ: Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ. We give thanks to God always for you all, making mention of you in our prayers; 2.Paul the Apostle wrote these words and addressed the church in Tessalonica.

Paul as d his missionary team recall how the church was born. Paul ever present perspective of life and ministry the perspective of grace.  3.This part of tessalonians is gonna unfold the great theme of the Lord’s coming. A church that makes an impact is a local community of people who are in God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit. The church should be regarded as important to Christians because of its importance to Christ. Purchased it with His blood and intimately identifies himself with it. The church is the body of Christ the dwelling place of his spirit. The church is God’s instrument for bringing both the gospel to the nations and the great host of redeemed humanity to himself

Paul chose the Tessalonians believes for salvation. Their salvation through the gospel was by the power of the Holy Spirit. We all have been transformed by the power of God through the gospel. Jesus is the gospel.
