Read: 1 Thessalonians 2
Big Idea: Christians declare the good news about Jesus, not to become popular with the world or to build our individual brands. The message of Christ does not appeal to men/women in darkness apart from the drawing of the Holy Spirit anyway. Instead, we speak the Gospel to please God, who is the judge of our hearts. He knows our motives, and we will give an account to Him.
1 Thessalonians 2:4 But as we have been approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel, even so we speak, not as pleasing men, but God who tests our hearts.
