Life Lessons
Life Lesson (1 Thessalonians 2:2)

In Philippi, Paul pressed the issue of his rights as a Roman citizen.

Life Lesson (1 Thessalonians 2:2)

Paul did not selfishly demand his rights. Paul used his rights and privileges as a Roman citizen, not once but twice in the book of Acts for ministry. We should be willing to use our rights and privileges as a US Citizen for ministry.

Life Lesson (1 Thessalonians 2:20)

Having either greed for gain, or fear of loss, (or both greed for gain and fear of loss), impedes a person’s ability to think clearly and rationally. The Bible teaches us that we should have neither greed for gain nor fear of loss.

Isaiah 55:11 NKJV
So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth;
It shall not return to Me void,
But it shall accomplish what I please,
And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.
Acts 16:18-22 NKJV
18 But Paul, greatly annoyed, turned and said to the spirit, "I command you in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her." And he came out that very hour. 19 But when her masters saw that their hope of profit was gone, they seized Paul and Silas and dragged them into the marketplace to the authorities. 20 And they brought them to the magistrates, and said, "These men, being Jews, exceedingly trouble our city; 21 and they teach customs which are not lawful for us, being Romans, to receive or observe."
Acts 16:37-38 NKJV
37 But Paul said to them, "They have beaten us openly, uncondemned Romans, and have thrown us into prison. And now do they put us out secretly? No indeed! Let them come themselves and get us out."
38 And the officers told these words to the magistrates, and they were afraid when they heard that they were Romans.
Acts 22:25-30 NKJV

25 And as they bound him with thongs, Paul said to the centurion who stood by, "Is it lawful for you to scourge a man who is a Roman, and uncondemned?"
26 When the centurion heard that, he went and told the commander, saying, "Take care what you do, for this man is a Roman."
27 Then the commander came and said to him, "Tell me, are you a Roman?"
He said, "Yes."
28 The commander answered, "With a large sum I obtained this citizenship."
And Paul said, "But I was born a citizen." 29 Then immediately those who were about to examine him withdrew from him; and the commander was also afraid after he found out that he was a Roman, and because he had bound him. 30 The next day, because he wanted to know for certain why he was accused by the Jews, he released him from his bonds, and commanded the chief priests and all their council to appear, and brought Paul down and set him before them.
