DAILY READINGS: Leviticus 5:14-6:7; Psalm 105:1-45; Acts 27:27-44

We were bold in our God to speak unto you the gospel of God with much contention. 1 Thessalonians 2:2

Though Paul and his companions had been physically and verbally abused in Philippi, it did not weaken their resolve to continue preaching. So in the next place, Thessalonica, they carried right on proclaiming the gospel. This verse says they were bold. They exercised great courage as they proclaimed the good news. As then, so now, this message needs to be proclaimed with boldness by all Christians. It changes lives. —Paul Young

Ye servants of God, your Master proclaim,
And publish abroad His wonderful name;
The name all-victorious of Jesus extol;
His kingdom is glorious and rules over all. —Charles Wesley
