Thinking About Thessalonica

Thinking About Thessalonica Sermon Audio Here

1 Th. 2:1-8

Consider all of the tests available today: Meyers/Briggs Personality tests; MENSA intelligence tests, SAT/PSAT-NMSQT academic tests… what about motives? Last week, we looked for genuineness (testing thankfulness); this week, we’re measuring motive…

How Do We Test For Intent?

Watch What Is Dared ~ 1 Th. 2:1-4

  • 1/2 willing to risk sharing
  • 3/4 why willing? Because they know they’re called/entrusted

Check Why It’s Shared ~ 1 Th. 2:5-7

  • 5 flattery= like a politician who says whatever needs to be said to gain a vote
  • 6 apostles are enabled with authority, but don’t use it to gain glory (opposite of politician)
  • 7 nurture, not neediness

1 Th. 2:8 because we love, we want to give more than the gospel, but our selves. Give your SELF away!
