Aim to Please God Only

Paul, Silas, and Timothy were at risk of being put in prison for teaching about Christ but as we read in 1 Thessalonians 2:1-16, Paul defends himself and his companions by boldly sharing the Gospel. They graciously shared with joy and perseverance in the face of persecution.

They shared the message in a practical, courteous, gentle, and open way with the aim to please God only.  Much like a parent to their children, they encouraged, comforted, and urged them to live lives worthy of God so they would change the world for the better.

This day with You Lord, we have been given a high calling which inspires us to be prepared for the challenge. Move in us the willingness to read and study the Word on a daily basis in order to be prepared. Daily Bible study will be a measure of our aim to love and serve You Lord. Amen.

About Mark Shields

Mark volunteers as a member of the media ministry team at his church. A few years ago, he started an on-line Bible study guide called “This Day with God Devotional”. He uses this as a tool in his journey through the Bible. We live in a very busy world with busy schedules so this tool has helped him continue with daily Bible reading and study. Each of the studies are designed to help apply our faith in the work place, at school, or at home. Join him on this journey or check in every so often to read his thoughts.
