Introduction. 

1)      We dared to tell you the Gospel of God

“We 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.  3 For the appeal we make does not spring from error or impure motives, nor are we trying to trick you. 4 On the contrary, we speak as those approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel.  We are not trying to please people but God, who tests our hearts.”

A.      What we told you: the Gospel of God 
B.      What it took: daring.

2)      We did it in spite of everything

A.     In spite of where it got us in Philippi

B.      In spite of where it got us with you. 

3)      The motivations that enabled this action

A.      Not self-pleasers
We weren’t coming there for the sake of our health … we were not seeking any benefit for ourselves.

1.      Not self-serving error “the appeal we make does not spring from error “.

2.      Not impure motives “or impure motives”.

3.      Not trickery δόλος - craft, deceit, guile

B.      Not man-pleasers

C.      But pleasers of God

1.      Our consciousness – we are on trust

2.      Answering (only) to Him.

V.      Conclusion

Must it only be when that third generation Professor Hiebert talks about have emptied the chapels and enervated their Christian witness to the point where desperation drives a remnant of God’s people back to the Book?

Or are we able to commit to constant Reformation of our attitudes, ideals and practices to the Scripture … and the set of mind that the Apostles in 1 Thessalonians 2:2-4 are MODELLING for us to learn from today?
