1 Thessalonians 1:2–10

Thanksgiving for the Thessalonians’ Faith

We always thank God for all of youe and continually mention you in our prayers.f We remember before our God and Fatherg your work produced by faith,h your labor prompted by love,i and your endurance inspired by hopej in our Lord Jesus Christ.

For we know, brothers and sistersb loved by God,k that he has chosen you, because our gospell came to you not simply with words but also with power,m with the Holy Spirit and deep conviction. You known how we lived among you for your sake. You became imitators of uso and of the Lord, for you welcomed the message in the midst of severe sufferingp with the joyq given by the Holy Spirit.r And so you became a models to all the believers in Macedoniat and Achaia.u The Lord’s messagev rang out from you not only in Macedonia and Achaia—your faith in God has become known everywhere.w Therefore we do not need to say anything about it, for they themselves report what kind of reception you gave us. They tell how you turnedx to God from idolsy to serve the living and true God,z 10 and to wait for his Son from heaven,a whom he raised from the deadb—Jesus, who rescues us from the coming wrath.c
