1 Thessalonians 1: The gospel comes both in word and in power. 1 Thessalonians 2: True ministers preach in a godly manner—Converts are the glory and joy of missionaries. 1 Thessalonians 3: The Saints are told to perfect that which is lacking in their faith. 1 Thessalonians 4: The Saints are told to be holy, sanctify themselves, and love one another—The Lord will come, and the dead will rise. 1 Thessalonians 5: The Saints will know the season of the Second Coming of Christ—Live the way Saints should live—Rejoice evermore—Do not despise prophesyings. 2 Thessalonians 1: At His Second Coming, the Lord Jesus will take vengeance upon the ungodly. 2 Thessalonians 2: Apostasy is to precede the Second Coming—The gospel prepares men for eternal glory. 2 Thessalonians 3: Pray for the triumph of the gospel cause—Paul preaches the gospel of work—Be not weary in well-doing.
