The Work Of The Word

 

1 Thessalonians 2:13-20 (NASB)
13  For this reason we also constantly thank God that when you received the word of God which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men, but for what it really is, the word of God, which also performs its work in you who believe.
14  For you, brethren, became imitators of the churches of God in Christ Jesus that are in Judea, for you also endured the same sufferings at the hands of your own countrymen, even as they did from the Jews,
15  who both killed the Lord Jesus and the prophets, and drove us out. They are not pleasing to God, but hostile to all men,
16  hindering us from speaking to the Gentiles so that they may be saved; with the result that they always fill up the measure of their sins. But wrath has come upon them to the utmost.
17  But we, brethren, having been taken away from you for a short while—in person, not in spirit—were all the more eager with great desire to see your face.
18  For we wanted to come to you—I, Paul, more than once—and yet Satan hindered us.
19  For who is our hope or joy or crown of exultation? Is it not even you, in the presence of our Lord Jesus at His coming?
20  For you are our glory and joy.

Matthew 19:13-14 (NIV)
13  Then little children were brought to Jesus for him to place his hands on them and pray for them. But the disciples rebuked those who brought them.
14  Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."
