I Thessalonians 1

1Paul, #1 Pet. 5:12Silvanus, and Timothy,
To the church of the #Acts 17:1–9Thessalonians in God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ:
Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
Their Good Example
2#Rom. 1:8; 2 Thess. 1:3We give thanks to God always for you all, making mention of you in our prayers, 3remembering without ceasing #John 6:29your work of faith, #Rom. 16:6labor of love, and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ in the sight of our God and Father, 4knowing, beloved brethren, #Col. 3:12your election by God. 5For #Mark 16:20our gospel did not come to you in word only, but also in power, #2 Cor. 6:6and in the Holy Spirit #Heb. 2:3and in much assurance, as you know what kind of men we were among you for your sake.
6And #1 Cor. 4:16; 11:1you became followers of us and of the Lord, having received the word in much affliction, #Acts 5:41; 13:52; 2 Cor. 6:10; Gal. 5:22with joy of the Holy Spirit, 7so that you became examples to all in Macedonia and Achaia who believe. 8For from you the word of the Lord #Rom. 10:18has sounded forth, not only in Macedonia and Achaia, but also #Rom. 1:8; 16:19; 2 Cor. 2:14; 2 Thess. 1:4in every place. Your faith toward God has gone out, so that we do not need to say anything. 9For they themselves declare concerning us #1 Thess. 2:1what manner of entry we had to you, #1 Cor. 12:2and how you turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God, 10and #(Rom. 2:7)to wait for His Son from heaven, whom He raised from the dead, even Jesus who delivers us #Matt. 3:7; Rom. 5:9from the wrath to come.
