Responding to Criticism in a Godly Way | 1 Thessalonians 2:1-16

Passage: 1 Thessalonians 2:1-16
Service Type:

- Criticising Christians is nothing new.

1. The Criticism Paul Faced (v1-6a).
2. The Outworking of the Gospel (v6b-12).
3. The Cost of Discipleship (v13-16).

- By faith, speak and act courageously in the name of Jesus – and don’t be silenced
by the criticisms of others;
- In love, learn to encourage and support one another;
- And in hope, endure times of suffering – knowing they will come upon those who
love and follow Jesus.
