Thursday: Further Evidence of Faith (1 Thess. 1:8-10) — 2 Comments

  1. it seems that our friends welcomed the gospel with their all hearts, their willingness towards the gospel was indeed from deep down of their hearts. While we, nowadays it is difficult for us to receive the gospel. Though our friends faced many troubles but still they receive God what is wrong with us, we have to be like the Thessalonians after Paul had preached to them they were happy to hear good news that set them free.

  2. Evidences of Faith go togehter with evidences of selection in this passage. (1)The Thessalonians accepted the gospel with joy of the Holy Spirit, affliction and persecution could not eradicate. (2) Following the apostles and the Lord they reflected Christ`s image in contrast to pagan licentiousness. (3) Their missionary spirit reached out beyond any limitation. (3) Having turned to the living and true God, away from heathenism, they dedicated themselves fully to that God and Father who had called and selected them. They were waiting for the coming of the Son of God from heaven to get them home. What further evidences of faith and selection do we need?
