Paul's Passing Thoughts

No Prior Experience Necessary

“For from you sounded out the word of the Lord not only in Macedonia and Achaia, but also in every place your faith to God-ward is spread abroad; so that we need not to speak any thing.” ~ 1 Thessalonians 1:8

The believers from Thessalonica experienced tremendous persecution from the traditional Jewish religious establishment (Acts 17:1-9). Nevertheless, they were equipped by Paul and company to be able to carry the gospel message to the far reaches of their surrounding provinces, so much so that they in effect did Paul’s work of spreading the gospel for him. Evangelism is not something reserved for missionaries or those with “special callings”. Evangelism is an individual mandate!
