  1. 1 Thessalonians 1:4-10
    1. Gospel
    2. Sacrifice
    3. Word
  2. Understanding of the Gospel of grace
    1. Do you understand that the gospel is a good news about grace.
    2. You were dead in your sins
    3. You were a slave
    4. Christ didn’t set you free so you could do whatever you want. He came to set you free from doing whatever you want
  3. They were willing to lose anything out of the thankfulness from the Grace of God
  4. Word
    1. 1 Thessalonians 2:13
    2. 1 Thessalonians 1:6
      1. You will become an example so much more in the middle of suffering than you ever will apart from it.
      2. God get’s glory from our lives as we lay them down.
