The Message at Work

Paul left Thessalonica with a thankful heart.
And it wasn’t because of the hospitality he received there.
A Jewish mob, outraged by his teaching, set the city in an uproar, and ran him out of town.
These mobsters wanted to stop the proclamation of the Gospel.
They even followed Paul and his team to Berea to stir up trouble there.
So why was Paul thankful?
Because the new believers there accepted the message not as the word of men, but as what it really is, the word of God.
This word of God, the message concerning Jesus Christ, was at work in them.
It was so powerful, it turned these men and women from idols to serve the living and true God.
And it anchored them in genuine, life-changing hope.
Be thankful today that this same word of God is at work in you.
