Authentic Ministry
1 Thessalonians 2:9-12
Speaker's Picture
Sunday School,  November 25, 2012

Paul had only three weeks to plant the church at Thessalonica. After his departure due to persecution, Paul feared that the believers would turn away. Evidently, some opponents of the gospel were trying to slander Paul and undermine his reputation in order to lure the believers away. Therefore, Paul takes great pains to remind them of the authenticity of his ministry among them. In the section, we gain valuable insight into what authentic ministry looks like.
