1 Thessalonians 1:5 is an intriguing verse. I have, up to this point read it to mean what most of my signs and wonders friends have suggested, that when Paul says that his gospel came with "power" he was referring to exceptional demonstrations of the Holy Spirit, miracles. Reading through that this morning, and certainly interested in receiving a miracle, I am not so sure that is what Paul is saying.
John 14:35 seems to support this. What do you think?
