New Testament:
1 Thessalonians 1:1-2:8

 

Summary: The Thessalonians’ Faith and Example, Paul’s Ministry to the Thessalonians

 

For our appeal does not spring from error or impurity or any attempt to deceive, but just as we have been approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel, so we speak, not to please man, but to please God who tests our hearts. For we never came with words of flattery, as you know, nor with a pretext for greed—God is witness. Nor did we seek glory from people, whether from you or from others, though we could have made demands as apostles of Christ. ~ 1 Thessalonians 2:3-6

 

flattering words. Paul used three disclaimers to affirm the purity of his motives for ministry:

(1) he denied being a smooth-talking preacher who tried to make favorable impressions in order to gain influence for selfish advantage;

(2) he did not pretend to be poor and work night and day (cf. 1Th_2:9) as a pretense to get rich in the ministry at their expense; and

(3) he didn’t use his honored position as an apostle to seek personal glory, only God’s glory (cf. 1Co_10:31).    by John MacArthur
