must supplement witnessing.
Ye are witnesses, and God also, how holily and justly
and unblameably we behaved ourselves among you
that believe (1 Thess. 2:10).
When a person accepts Christ as Savior, he immediately
becomes a newborn child of God. You feed them basic
concepts of the "sincere milk of the word (1Pet. 2:2) by
which they may grow! Even the Lord Jesus Christ is said
to have taught His audience "as they were able to hear it"
(Mark 4:33)! Paul is like a father to the Thessalonian
believers; he treated them as he would his own children.
As ye know how we exhorted and comforted and charged
every one of you, as a father doth his children (1 Thess. 2:11).
We have this HOPE as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure.
Cast your cares on God; that anchor holds.
