ALWAYS SHOW JESUS NOT OURSELVES!!
1 THESSALONIANS 2:6-8
6We were not looking for praise from people, not from you or anyone else, even though as apostles of Christ we could have asserted our authority. 7Instead, we were like young children among you. Just as a nursing mother cares for her children, 8so we cared for you. Because we loved you so much, we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well.
2: 6-8 When Paul was with the Thessalonians, he didn’t flatter them, seek their praise, or become a burden to them. He and Silas completely focused their efforts on presenting God’s message of salvation to them. The Thessalonian believers had their lives changed by God, not Paul; they believed Christ’s message, not Paul’s. When we witness for Christ, our focus should not be on the impressions we make. As true ministers of Christ, we should point to him, not to ourselves.
2: 7 That Paul and his companions “were like young children” among the Thessalonians does not mean they were immature or untrained. Rather, Paul was making the point that, like children, they were honest, straightforward, and without guile in their presentation of the gospel and in their lives.Tyndale. NIV Life Application Study Bible.
ON THE WAY HOME WALK WITH JESUS and insure that our actions and motives are always showing JESUS love and his GOSPEL and not being about anything we do except showing hhow JESUS changes our lives by his love!!
