WHAT FOLLOWS FOLLOW?

WHAT FOLLOWS FOLLOW?

Sermon Handout

Following is not an end unto itself. Following is actually a beginning, and, as such, following is expected to produce things. Do you know why? Because when you become a follower you are expected to be a worker. As a result, following ought to be productive, but what should following produce?

For you yourselves know how you ought to imitate us, because we were not idle when we were with you, nor did we eat anyone’s bread without paying for it, but with toil and labor we worked night and day, that we might not be a burden to any of you. It was not because we do not have that right, but to give you in ourselves an example to imitate.

2 Thessalonians 3:7-9
