Power Revisited

Yesterday we asked if the power with which Paul shared the gospel in 1 Thessalonians was in manifestations of the Spirit that is signs and wonders, or something more pedestrian.  I suggested that the context suggested that it was the way Paul conducted himself as he engaged with the Thessalonians.
The power of a life totally given to others cannot be over stated.
There seems to be evidence of this in 1 Thessalonians 2:8.  Spend some time thinking through the import of that verse.  Look particularly at the heart attitude of Paul toward those with whom he is engaged.  He is not only all in, but he is all in with all of his heart, his life.

This is not something that Paul does as a component of his life to balance out his existence.  No, this is his focus.  Intense focus.  No wonder it was powerful.
