In 1 Thessalonians 2:13-20 we see an interesting idea. The people accepted God for God. They didn’t see Paul and his group as the ones to be worshipped, but instead realized that the worship belonged to Christ.
Do we see Christ in the things that are around us? Do we recognize and worship Christ and Him alone? We have so many wonderful and amazing things all around us and while we may not intend to, we can become distracted by these things and unintentionally give them our praise. God is the only one worthy of our praise. Will we recognize when He is at work in us and praise Him accordingly?
