The Ministry God Honors

This Lord’s Day, we continue in the New Testament book of 1 Thessalonians looking at the ministry God honors. In chapter two, the Apostle Paul defends his ministry against slanders and critics but not for his sake, but for Christ, His Gospel, and the spiritual health of the young Thessalonian believers. Here we find a model of our own ministries and how to properly defend it against those who would seek to discredit and damage its Gospel effectiveness.
