Have you ever thought that sharing the Gospel, or sharing your testimony was a waste of time? Perhaps you thought that people wouldn’t be encouraged or changed by hearing how the Gospel transformed your life? Satan will do anything to keep God’s people quiet. Those silencing thoughts are from the enemy. Listen as Pastor Matt looks at to show how that the word echoed throughout the Roman empire as the Thessalonians obediently shared the Good News. It was not celebrated by all, some rejected, but many were encouraged in their faith and many believed. Trials come from obedience in this present age, but the impact on the world today and the exaltation that God’s people await in heaven is worth it all. Be bold! Tell how the Gospel has transformed your life as live out your faith.
8 For not only has the word of the Lord sounded forth from you in Macedonia and Achaia, but your faith in God has gone forth everywhere, so that we need not say anything. 9 For they themselves report concerning us the kind of reception we had among you, and how you turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God, 10 and to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, Jesus who delivers us from the wrath to come.
