1 Thessalonians 1:7-10
Thus you became a pattern for all the believers in Macedonia and Achaia; for the Lord’s message sounded forth from you not only in Macedonia and Achaia, but everywhere your trust toward God became known. The result is that we don’t need to say anything; since they themselves keep telling us about the welcome we received from you and how you turned to God from idols, to serve the true God, the one who is alive, and to wait for his Son Yeshua, whom he raised from the dead, to appear from heaven and rescue us from the impending fury of God’s judgment.
This is our template as believers, it is not our words which convict people but our actions. Sha’ul is praising the body in Thessalonica for their convictions which have reach all of Asia. Abba let me be so inclined as this community which served You. Let my actions direct others to Your salvation which is in Yeshua ha Mashiach, Jesus the Messiah. I ask this in Yeshua’s name, amen.
