Week 4: A Scripture A Day — 1 Thess 2:4

“But as we were allowed of God to be put in trust with the gospel, even so we speak; not as pleasing men, but God, which trieth our hearts.”
Bible with Coffee
As you share what the Scripture speaks to you and it’s application to our lives today, also consider:
– What does it mean that we were “allowed” of God…?
– In light of this word “allowed” consider Acts 9:20-25 which speaks of Paul’s actions when he first became a Christian.
-Has there been a time in your life when you were in a hurry to get that promotion or receive that promise but you had to wait?

Week 3: A Scripture A Day — 2 Cor 3:18

 Bible with Coffee

“But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.” 2 Cor 3:18

When do you find yourself quoting this verse? When in a difficult situation? What does it mean “from glory to glory”? Share with us what this Scripture speaks to you. I look forward to reading your response.
