10/10/19: 1 Thessalonians 2:9-3:13; Psalm 80:1-19; Proverbs 25:1-5

In a lesson Artie taught in August he highlighted that one of the greatest tools Satan uses to draw people away from the Lord is Christian “laziness.”   In other words believers who simply accept what is taught or heard without reading and studying on their own to ensure that the teacher is faithful to God’s Word and God’eternal plan of salvation.   Today we see Paul commend the Thessalonians for evaluating the source.

1 Thessalonians 2: 13 And we also thank God continually because, when you received the word of God, which you heard from us, you accepted it not as a human word, but as it actually is, the word of God, which is indeed at work in you who believe.
