An Authentic Ministry – 1 Thessalonians Ch 2v1-16

Andy Hunter looks at Paul’s defence of his ministry to the Thessalonians, which is found in this part of his letter. Here Paul demonstrates that he showed three key signs of an authentic ministry. To be authentic, a ministry must be:
• Sincere – because if the messenger cannot be trusted, what confidence can there be in the message?
• One that Serves – far from using his hearers, Paul worked hard to help them.
• One that Suffers – willing to persevere even through persecution and suffering.
