Bible Study Training: How does the bible transform us from the inside out?
Jack Thompson encourages us to start thinking for our campuses and gives a list practicals to intentionally engage the campus for Christ.
From 1 Thessalonians 2:5-12 Jack Thompson begins by showing us the two pitfalls of flattery: saying what we don’t need to say in people pleasing and refraining from saying what we need to say because of our fear of people. Encouragement is different from flattery because it is not self-seeking or even other-seeking, but because it is gospel-seeking. True encouragement points people towards God.
Jack Thompson defines burdens as our standing before God. This roots out the possibility of comparing ourself to others, but instead leads to acts of encouragement that points to Christ.
