Discipleship (1 Thessalonians 1-2)

Paul sure does remember a lot of people constantly in prayer. It makes me wonder at how long his prayer sessions really are.

On another note, I think that it’s fascinating that Paul gets so happy when he thinks about the people he has seen come to Christ. He wants to continue to see them and pour into them – his passion to see them continue to grow is staggering. He prizes discipleship equally with evangelism, as evident at least by this letter. It is also kind of neat that the new church in Thessalonica has apparently been persecuted heavily, yet still stands firm. Clearly there was life change in those who found Christ, and that is interesting to think about.
