You = Example
1 Thessalonians 1 Paul, Silvanus, and Timothy, To the church of the Thessalonians in God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ: Grace to you and peace...
When someone knows or discovers that you are a believer in Christ, your life becomes an example to them, whether you realize it or not. Paul lays this out in 1 Thessalonians 1:6-7 when he talks about how the people in the church at Thessalonica imitated him, and then he comes right out and tells these believers that they are examples in verse 7.
So does knowing that you are an example (for believers and also for those who don't yet know Christ) impact your behavior? How? Tami W.
