<041> Thesis: The messengers of The Gospel need to be as pure in motive as their message. Introduction: In our last study we considered Paul's claim that he was trustworthy because he was trusted by God after having been put in multiple situations where his choices proved his "love". Paul's claim was that he had demonstrated a willingness to be faithful to the Message at any, and every, cost to himself. Thus, his readers could not legitimately assign any selfish motives to Paul. This makes his Gospel trustworthy. In our text tonight we are going to see how Paul reinforces this argument by addressing the three basic issues of human motivation outside of participation with Christ.
