BELIEVING IS SEEING

“BELIEVING IS SEEING”
1 THESSALONIANS 2:13

INTRO: In our last study from 1 Thessalonians, we focused on CHAPTER 2 and VERSE 13 that speaks of the 
effectual working of the WORD OF GOD upon the lives of those who BELIEVE. You may recall that in that 
study we learned three things:
 1) THE SCRIPTURE IS THE WORD OF GOD, NOT THE WORD OF MEN
 2) THE SCRIPTURE IS THE TRUTH OF GOD, AND IS ABSOLUTE TRUTH
 3) THE SCRIPTURE IS THE OPERATION OF GOD, ACTIVELY ENERGIZING BELIEVERS
Today we are going to return to 1 Thessalonians 2:13 so as to focus on ONE SMALL WORD THAT BRINGS 
ONE HUGE EFFECT upon those who practice it. It is the very last word of the verse…” BELIEVE.” The title 
of the message today is “BELIEVING IS SEEING.” The point of the message is BELIEF IN THE RIGHT THING 
ALWAYS RESULTS IN SEEING THE DIVINE THING. In other words, WHEN WE TRULY BELIEVE PROPERLY, WE 
WILL TRULY SEE THE EFFECTUAL WORKING OF GOD IN OUR LIVES.
NOTE: “BELIEVE” in the verse is “PISTEUO” in the Greek which means “TO COMMIT OR TO HAVE FULL 
CONFIDENCE IN.”
A REMINDER: The Bible DOES NOT JUST CONTAIN the Word of God…The Bible IS the Word of God. (Isaiah 
55:11; Jeremiah 15:16; John 17:17; 1 Peter 1:23-25)
