Reading along with us in 1 Thessalonians? Here’s today’s reading:

1 Thessalonians 1 (ESV)

Paul, Silvanus, and Timothy,

To the church of the Thessalonians in God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ:

Grace to you and peace.

We give thanks to God always for all of you, constantly mentioning you in our prayers, remembering before our God and Father your work of faith and labor of love and steadfastness of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ. For we know, brothersloved by God, that he has chosen you, because our gospel came to you not only in word, but also in power and in the Holy Spirit and with full conviction. You know what kind of men we proved to be among you for your sake. And you became imitators of us and of the Lord, for you received the word in much affliction, with the joy of the Holy Spirit, so that you became an example to all the believers in Macedonia and in Achaia....Continue Reading

  3. This first chapter is certainly an encouraging one for the Thessalonians that causes us to think about how thankful we are for those around us and how we might be encouraging others who believe to grow in faith. I have read the chapter several times over the past few nights and each time am struck by Paul’s triumvirate of the work produced by faith, your labor prompted by love and their endurance inspired by hope. All essential elements in the Christian life that have an intended result in our lives. But all of these are written to remind the Thessalonians how they responded to the gospel. And Paul continues that theme for the rest of that chapter and a little into the next. It reminds us to remember the initial enthusiasm of our faith and how when we might be discouraged how that can be an affirmation of faith, I think that is why Paul brings this up to them here. He continues to encourage them in faith by reminding them that their faith not only brought good result in their own life, but became an example for others as well. All good things to reflect on as we think about our own faith and how it has impacted our lives for the better and how our lives then have impacted other people as well.
