<077> Thesis: The "ministry" is dominated by the issues of "power", "motivation", "determination", and "intention". Introduction: In our last study we considered the intensity of Paul's desire to see the Thessalonians as it was expressed by his extraordinary intensity in prayer. We also looked into his stated motivation: to provide for the "lack" that existed in the "faith" of the Thessalonians. This evening we are going to look at something a little larger than the desire to see the Thessalonians. We are going to look at how Paul handled his desires when it became obvious that God was not going to grant them.
