Paul's Letters to the Thessalonians

There are a lot of crazy churches in the New Testament: Corinth, Galatia. Ephesus. But there are some not-so-crazy ones, too. The Apostle Paul had such a good time with the believers in Thessalonica that he practically wrote them love letters afterwards--letters full of affection and hope. The letters also contain important instruction on how we can spend our time on earth. Jesus is coming soon to bring heaven to earth. But in the meantime, there are plenty of ways to build his kingdom. Paul's prayer for the Thessalonians--and for us--is that we do these things "more and more"--without delay--until the Lord returns to make all things new.
