Becoming Imitators

Session 3.42 for October 16, 2011

In our scripture today, Paul is greeting the church at Thessalonica and praising them for their mature faith. He is especially proud of the church for becoming examples to believers in Macedonia and Achaia. Their lives were transformed as they began to follow Christ and it showed in the way they lived. In Acts 17, when Paul first met with the Thessalonians, they were accused of turning the world upside down. What would it be like to be accused of turning the world upside down because of the radical way we lived our faith?
