1 Thessalonians

July 7, 2021

I Thessalonians 2:10-12

Ye are witnesses, and God also, how holily and justly and unblameably we behaved ourselves among you that believe: As ye know how we exhorted and comforted and charged every one of you, as a father doth his children, That ye would walk worthy of God, who hath called you unto his kingdom and glory.

Paul’s basic message to the people of Thessalonica was:

of God.

Why should I feel motivated to walk a godly walk day by day?

  1. Because God has me! (who hath called you)
  2. Because God has given me a place in His ! (called you unto his kingdom)
  3. Because God has allowed me to be a participant in His ! (called you unto his kingdom)

 

I Thessalonians 2:13

For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe.

In I Thessalonians 2:13, Paul first in the faith of the people of the church in Thessalonica, then he their faith.

Faith is inseparably to God’s Words.

  1. Faith begins when you the Word of God. (received the word of God which ye heard of us)
  1. Faith when you receive it AS the Word of God. (ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God)
  1. Faith becomes more effective the more you  the Word of God. (which effectually worketh also in you that believe)
