We Cared . . .

so much for you that we were pleased . . .
Is it it pleasing to you to minister to your Bible study group? Do you enjoy what you are doing?
to share with you not only the gospel of God . . .
Teaching the gospel message is central to our purpose.
but also our own lives, because you had become dear to us.
 (1 Thessalonians 2:8, HCSB)
Investing in relationships is central to the Word of God coming alive in those we teach.
How much of your own life have you invested in relationships with your group? Is your group "dear" to you? I challenge you to, while remaining tenacious for the message of the gospel, develop tenderness for your Bible study group members.
