Paul and Silas had made their way to Thessalonica and were preaching the good news of Jesus. Amongst the listeners, were God fearing Jews. Paul reasoned and explained and proved that Jesus was the Messiah that they had been waiting for. Some believed but some were jealous. Those that were jealous struggled to accept the revelations that Paul was teaching them so they stirred up trouble.
It’s amazing to me that this message of salvation, that carries hope, love, peace and grace, can also stir unease and unrest in people. When someone shares a new, fresh, deeper revelation of God to me, I wonder how much convincing and explaining I need to have before I receive it?
Father God, may I have an open heart to receive deeper truths about you. Continue to teach me more about who you are.
