1Thessalonians Chapter One



1. From Paul and Silvanus and Timothy, to the Thessalonian church, which shares life with God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. We send you blessing and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

2. We always thank God for you as we make mention of you in our prayers.

3. We can never forget you faithfulness and the loving care you show to all, as your expectation of the ongoing goodness of Jesus towards you has caused you to endure all things patiently in the sight of God and our Father.

4. We know how you have been chosen by God for a special purpose

5. Because the message of a shared life with Jesus became real to you not only because of the truth of the words we spoke, but also because of the power of the Holy Spirit in confirming it in your hearts. You saw the lives of faith that we lived, moving you to want to live that same faith life.

6. And then you began to live the same faith life that we lived, and that the Lord lived, because you fully accepted the word despite the persecution you went through, and you kept the joy of the Holy Spirit through it all.

7. This has become a shining example of all believers in the entire region of Macedonia and Achaia.

8. This has caused the word of God to go forth not only in the regions of Macedonia and Achaia, but way beyond that. Your faith in God has spread so far and wide, that we don’t have to add one thing to what people already know and have already heard.

9. People keep telling us of the way you passionately and wholeheartedly accepted our message, and how it turned you away from serving false gods and idols, to serving the real and living God.

10. They told us how you were waiting for his Son Jesus’ return to the earth, whom he raised from the dead – the same Jesus who rescues us from the penalty and consequence of sin.
