READ: 1 Thessalonians 5:16-24

What happens at a church where there is no joy? According to this passage, what can we do to encourage one another? If you find something to complain about at church you are joining an absolutely non-exclusive club. Every congregation has lots to gripe about. But, what are we encouraged to do instead? According to vs. 19, what happens when you become a complainer? Today, as you prepare your heart for church worship tomorrow, rather than use your tongue to complain, use it to pray for your pastor, the musicians, the worship leaders and teachers.

What does this list mean? Why do you think God has listed all these admonishes out?

Why is it important to pay attention to those who are leaders in the church? What is their work? Why would it be bad to ignore the teachings and admonitions of church leaders? Why are we told to live at peace with others? Is there anyone with whom you are at odds? Go make things right. Who are we to be patient with? What is the best way to help those who are just idle and not involved at church? Today, find someone that you can mentor to help you do your ministry at church. Everyone needs to be mentored and to in turn mentor another.

About what are we supposed to be encouraging one another? What can happen in the twilight of our age if we decide not to encourage one another? Look around our culture and even in churches there is a distancing and hardening going on. As the day of judgement draws near, how can you encourage others who may be struggling with the darkness?
