The apostle Paul loved the Thessalonians and the little church that was established there. But, as with anything in life, there were a fair number of obstacles to overcome. We are in the midst of a verse by verse study through the book of First Thessalonians. turn to chapter three now, as we join Pastor Al.

The Thessalonians knew they could count on Paul and that’s what we’re going to see today as we continue our ongoing study of First Thessalonians here on The Dwelling Place with Pastor Al Pittman. Turn to 1st Thessalonians three as we join Pastor Al.

Today Al continues his verse by verse study through the book of Acts. As we know, Saul of Tarsus became the Apostle Paul - one of the greatest men in Christian history. That happened in Acts chapter nine. In our study today in Acts eight, we’ll get to know Saul, and another early missionary named Philip.

The Thessalonians held a special place in Paul's heart. Yet, there were some who questioned his loyalty to them. His response is a valuable lesson in friendship for us all.

A promise we don’t often claim is that those who seek to live godly lives will suffer persecution. This was true of the Thessalonian Christians, and yet they stood firm in persecution for the gospel’s sake. But that raises the question, why does the gospel arouse such opposition? 
March 24, 2022
We have commands that have come directly from the Lord. The Thessalonians believers understood that the word that the Apostle gave them was in truth - the word of God. And they responded accordingly.

Everyone comes into the world as a baby but we mature - some faster than others!. The same is true spiritually. And too many in the Church have not matured. As we’ll hear today, part of the problem is our low view of the Bible - that’s why there is such a disinterest in the things of God. But the bible is the very word of God - when the bible speaks, God speaks.

Today Pastor Al will be teaching from First Thessalonians chapter two, verses one through twelve. We’ll be reminded that Christian ministry is like the selfless and sacrificing roles of a mother and father. Paul and those who served with him are example for us to follow as pastors and spiritual leaders.

 Any Lawyer worth his degree knows case law. Case law is composed of previous cases, and how they turned out. These cases are often used to persuade juries and judges that a precedent has been set. Steven’s defense in Acts chapter seven is comprised of a good deal of “case law” from the Old Testament, and offers us a refresher course on some of the great men of the Bible.

Al attended Nazarene Bible College in Colorado Springs, graduating in 1977 with a degree in Biblical Studies. In 1991 Al and his family moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico, and two years later he joined the staff of Calvary Chapel Albuquerque as an assistant pastor and co-worship leader. In the spring of 1997 the Lord called Al and his family back to Colorado Springs to pastor Calvary Worship Center. In 2006, Al earned his Master’s degree and in 2012 he earned his Doctorate degree in Ministry from Trinity Southwest University in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
