During the years after Jesus walked the earth many were sent to the nations to preach and teach the Gospels (the good word). One of the most interesting and dually committed was Paul. He ventured out to some hostile places. He was persistent. He stuck to it. He died teaching and preaching. He had a tremendous, non- moving faith. Just think Paul was once Saul. One who tortured people who believed in God. Paul gave many instruction. The how to, to being a Christian.
I Thessalonians: 5:12-18
And we urge you, brethren, to recognize those who labor among you, and are over you in the Lord and admonish you, and to esteem them very highly in love for their work’s sake. Be at peace among yourselves.
Now we exhort you, brethren, warn those who are unruly, comfort the fainthearted, uphold the weak, be patient with all. See that no one renders evil for evil to anyone, but always pursue what is good both for yourselves and for all.
Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
