2 Thessalonians 3:7 For you yourselves know how you ought to follow us,
This is a very powerful evidence of the relationship between God & man. They were not taught or cohersed! They knew by experience. Paul taught them the word, yet the Holy Spirit confimed the word and spoke unto their hearts. How to follow (mimic) Paul as he followed Christ. What a confident & wise reminder, you know how to follow. I dont see a religious person being able to say this about someone else. The same God who radically changed Paul had changed these believers in Thessalonica. Lord, may I have that experiential knowledge of You today and the awareness of Your presence.
