1. You know, brothers and sisters, that our visit to you was not without results.2We had previously suffered and been treated outrageously in Philippi, as you know, but with the help of our God we dared to tell you his gospel in the face of strong opposition.

2: 1-2  “ Our visit to you” refers to Paul’s first visit to Thessalonica, recorded in Acts 17: 1-9. The Thessalonians knew that Paul had been imprisoned in Philippi just prior to coming to Thessalonica (see Acts 16: 11– 17: 1). Fear of imprisonment did not keep Paul from preaching the gospel. If God wants us to do something, like speak out for him as Paul did, he will give us the strength and courage to do it despite any obstacles that may come our way. Boldness is not reckless impulsiveness. Boldness requires courage to press through fears and do what is right. How can we be more bold? Like the apostles, we need to pray for courage. Through the Holy Spirit’s power, look and pray for opportunities to talk boldly about Christ. Start in small ways by sharing with friends and family how Jesus’ forgiveness has changed how you face life’s hardships.Tyndale. NIV Life Application Study Bible.

I dont think any of us have yet faced the threat of inprisonment as paul did by preaching the GOSPEL. The day may come but even if it does we must continue to speak BOLDLY for CHRIST!!
