7 Be kept Jn.17:11-12, 15 Coming of Lord “At Judgment God will not look you over for medals, degrees, or diplomas, but for scars”

8 I. Be Wholly Holy (23) II. Trust And Obey (24)

9 Our Caller is Faithful God is basis of our confidence Calls you – summon, invite, 2:12; 2 Th.2:14 2 Pt.1:10, sure Mt.22:1-14, unsure

10 I. Be Wholly Holy (23) III. Pray This Way (25) (17) II. Trust And Obey (24)

11 Return the favor (23) Paul... needs their prayers? Lessons: 1. Christians pray 2. Christians pray for others 3. We need each others’ prayers 4. Power is in prayer (not person)

12 I. Be Wholly Holy (23) IV. Meet And Greet (26) II. Trust And Obey (24) III. Pray This Way (25)

13 The facts Paul can’t be there to greet them, so he writes to some to greet the rest Each greeting must be 1 warm, 2 holy Problems in church (5:14-15): do not shun brother as an opponent “Unlovable”? Jn.15:13-15…17

14 I. Be Wholly Holy (23) V. Read And Heed (27) II. Trust And Obey (24) III. Pray This Way (25) IV. Meet And Greet (26)

15 Why such a solemn command? 1. This is not “just a letter”; Ac.13:27 2. Word is only way to solve problems in churches and Christians 3. Every Christian grows in this way

16 All Brothers 1. This first epistle establishes the prac- tice for all future letters. Col.4: Some misquoted him (2 Th.2:2); this will set record straight 3. Disorderly may avoid his correction 4. Future heresy would w/hold Scripture from ‘all brothers’ (e.g.: Rome)
