JANUARY 14 – WITNESSES

01/14 1 Thessalonians 2:10-14
You yourselves are our witnesses — and so is God — that we were pure and honest and faultless toward all of you believers. 11 And you know that we treated each of you as a father treats his own children. 12 We pleaded with you, encouraged you, and urged you to live your lives in a way that God would consider worthy. For he called you into his Kingdom to share his glory. 13 And we will never stop thanking God that when we preached his message to you, you didn’t think of the words we spoke as being just our own. You accepted what we said as the very word of God — which, of course, it was. And this word continues to work in you who believe. 14 And then, dear brothers and sisters, you suffered persecution from your own countrymen. In this way, you imitated the believers in God’s churches in Judea who, because of their belief in Christ Jesus, suffered from their own people, the Jews.
WITNESSES
Remember that the Lord is always a part of the crowd that witnesses your life. At the times when you are alone the Lord is the witness. Our struggle is not against flesh and bones but against the powers of darkness. The Lord is with us and He will not leave us alone.
