We’re moving to the book of 1st Thessalonians. As we spend time in this book, I’m excited to see how Paul’s words to these early believers apply to our lives today. Looking today at 1 Thessalonians 1:1-5, we see that Paul is reminding the people about how they brought the gospel to them. They didn’t just bring it in eord, but also in power and through the Holy Spirit. We have the most important message for all mankind, so are we just sharing it with words alone?
The Holy Spirit gives power to the word of God. Without the Holy Spirit in our lives working through us, what we share is simply words. As we allow the Holy Spirit to live through us we see his power demonstrated in all that we do and the words of Life we speak become unbelievably impactful to people in their lives. We should never be sharing just words, we are to share life, and that life is found through the power of the Holy Spirit through Jesus Christ!
