From You Sounded Out the Word Of The Lord

February 6, 2022 / 1 Thessalonians 1:1-10

“From You Sounded Out the Word Of The Lord” – 1 Thessalonians 1:1-10

Acts 17:4 And some of them believed, and consorted with Paul and Silas; and of the devout Greeks a great multitude, and of the chief women not a few.

1 Thessalonians 1:8 For from you sounded out the word of the Lord not only in Macedonia and Achaia, but also in every place your faith to God-ward is spread abroad; so that we need not to speak any thing.

Acts 17:2-3 And Paul, as his manner was, went in unto them, and three sabbath days reasoned with them out of the scriptures, Opening and alleging, that Christ must needs have suffered, and risen again from the dead; and that this Jesus, whom I preach unto you, is Christ.

I. Be of the Gospel’s Power

1 Thessalonians 1:1-4 Paul, and Silvanus, and Timotheus, unto the church of the Thessalonians which is in God the Father and in the Lord Jesus Christ: Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ. We give thanks to God always for you all, making mention of you in our prayers; Remembering without ceasing your work of faith, and labour of love, and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ, in the sight of God and our Father; Knowing, brethren beloved, your election of God.

The power of the gospel of Jesus Christ is powerful enough to forgive sins, provide a purpose in life, and literally change lives for the good.

1 Thessalonians 1:9-10 For they themselves shew of us what manner of entering in we had unto you, and how ye turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God; And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come.

When you truly know that you are saved and you have allowed God’s power to work in your life in such a way that you know you are a different person because of it you will be stirred in your heart to share that news with others.

Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

 

Being a faithful witness for Christ begins with being convinced that you truly know Him and that you have experienced the power of the gospel in your life.

II. Be Under Growing Pressure

1 Thessalonians 1:6-7 And ye became followers of us, and of the Lord, having received the word in much affliction, with joy of the Holy Ghost. So that ye were ensamples to all that believe in Macedonia and Achaia.

Nehemiah 8:10b For the joy of the Lord is your strength.

God can strengthen you as you share the gospel.

III. Be as You Go and Preach

1 Thessalonians 1:8-10 For from you sounded out the word of the Lord not only in Macedonia and Achaia, but also in every place your faith to God-ward is spread abroad; so that we need not to speak any thing. For they themselves shew of us what manner of entering in we had unto you, and how ye turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God; And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come.

You probably do not think of yourself as a preacher, but by definition that is what we are all to be.

Romans 10:14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?

Isaiah 58:1a Cry aloud, spare not, Lift up thy voice like a trumpet.
