1 Thessalonians 1:1-5 (1 Thessalonians 1:1-5)Tim Douglass, July 21, 2019
Part of the 1 Thessalonians series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
The beginning of 1 Thessalonians has a typical greeting followed by some specific reasons why Paul gives thanks for the Thessalonians in his prayers. He gives us a quick glimpse into the character of genuine believers and the proof of their salvation. While there aren’t a lot of words in this greeting they have a clear message to us.

1 Thessalonians 1:1-5
1Paul, and Silvanus, and Timotheus, unto the church of the Thessalonians which is in God the Father and in the Lord Jesus Christ: Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ. 2We give thanks to God always for you all, making mention of you in our prayers; 3Remembering without ceasing your work of faith, and labour of love, and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ, in the sight of God and our Father; 4Knowing, brethren beloved, your election of God. 5For our gospel came not unto you in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Ghost, and in much assurance; as ye know what manner of men we were among you for your sake. (KJV)
