Devos of the Week – 1 Thessalonians 2:13-14

“when you received the word of God…you accepted it not as a human word, but as…God’s word.” Carefully looking at the context of this verse reveals that the proof of receiving God’s word in this manner is displayed in their imitation of other churches and their willingness to suffer for Christ as did their fellow Christians.  This seems to be a different standard of “acceptance” than we often hear or see with our modern ideas of freedom and personal choice. What is the difference in practice between hearing human words and God’s word?  Help us to hear your word!
