|Staying in the Word|
Chapter Three, Lesson Two
CHRIST HONORING FELLOWSHIP Page 4
V. 8 ** Paul now gives a second reason for the Thessalonians obligatory need to follow his example. What is it?
** Besides preaching the gospel, teaching the saints and caring for those who travel with him, how hard was Paul willing to work in order to pay his own way?
** Paul willingly endured this labor and hardship for one extremely important reason. Do you see it here at the end of verse eight?
** Do you think that Paul is saying he never accepted hospitality or the gift of a meal?
** So, he was more than willing to work hard. Again, how did that compare to the folks in verse 11?
V. 9 ** As an apostle of Jesus Christ and a preacher of the gospel, did Paul have a right to be fed without keeping a secular job?
** So, if Paul did not have to work for a living, why did he choose to work night and day while among these baby Christians in Thessalonica?
