This Bible study booklet is based on 1 Thessalonians and is designed to assist disciples in handling growing pains. When a child is born, it is expected that he will grow. No parent would want their child to be a baby forever. But still, parents who give a child a right start are not guaranteed a healthy adult. Parents must have the ability to foresee future difficulties and prepare in advance for such times. So it is in the spiritual realm. Disciples need to know and experience the privileges that come with new birth. In addition, new disciples must be prepared for the responsibilities and trials that lay ahead. They must be fully equipped to face the challenges of the life ahead.
