Are You Ready, 1 Thessalonians 5:1-11

To prepare to teach the lesson, "Are you ready?" from 1 Thessalonians 5:1-11, think about life situations where you, or your class members have had to prepare for a coming event. For example, do you know someone who is pregnant? How should she and her husband make ready for the expected birth? What sort of things should they purchase? When should they begin to make ready?

In the focal verses, Paul ministered to the Thessalonicans as he taught them how to prepare for the coming of the Lord. Essentially he encouraged them to live a holy life as preparation for Jesus' return. He exhorted them to be ready.

What would you give as tips to prepare for anything: a job interview, a physical exam, a move to a new location, an emergency, or to teach the Bible on Sunday?
