2 Thessalonians 3:6-15 (2 Thessalonians 3:6-15)Tim Douglass, April 26, 2020
Part of the 2 Thessalonians series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
As we return to our series on 2 Thessalonians we are entering into the last part of the letter. This concluding section involves some specific commands regarding how to deal with particular problems in the body. I think it’s safe to say that this is a response to something Paul knows is going on and that he chooses to address here at the end of the letter as something important and useful, but not a part of his main point. So how do we deal with those who are in the church, but don’t act like it?

2 Thessalonians 3:6-15
6Now we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye withdraw yourselves from every brother that walketh disorderly, and not after the tradition which he received of us. 7For yourselves know how ye ought to follow us: for we behaved not ourselves disorderly among you; 8Neither did we eat any man's bread for nought; but wrought with labour and travail night and day, that we might not be chargeable to any of you: 9Not because we have not power, but to make ourselves an ensample unto you to follow us. 10For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat. 11For we hear that there are some which walk among you disorderly, working not at all, but are busybodies. 12Now them that are such we command and exhort by our Lord Jesus Christ, that with quietness they work, and eat their own bread. 13But ye, brethren, be not weary in well doing. 14And if any man obey not our word by this epistle, note that man, and have no company with him, that he may be ashamed. 15Yet count him not as an enemy, but admonish him as a brother. (KJV)
