Change the Story
Topic: Influencers Passage: 1 Thessalonians 1:8–1:10
All of us want people to say nice things about us to others. Sometimes that is easy for them to do and other times it isn’t. The challenge is to maintain our integrity and character in such a way that the story surrounding our lives is never tarnished. The apostle Paul encouraged this young church in Greece with that very narrative. Their God-honoring reputation had gone forth like a trumpet call into a region half the size of Texas. Everyone knew the church followed the Son of God. May our reputation be the same.
