1 Thessalonians 1:1-5 - Part 2 (2 Thessalonians 1:1-5)Tim Douglass, August 4, 2019
Part of the 1 Thessalonians series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
“And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.” That’s one of the well-known quotes from Paul’s writings and it follows his discourse on love. But several years before he wrote that passage in his first letter to the Corinthian church he wrote about faith, love, and hope here in 1 Thessalonians. This is not an instruction, however, but a description of what he has observed in the Thessalonians. Let’s look at what he means by these three important characteristics.

2 Thessalonians 1:1-5
1Paul, and Silvanus, and Timotheus, unto the church of the Thessalonians in God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ: 2Grace unto you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 3We are bound to thank God always for you, brethren, as it is meet, because that your faith groweth exceedingly, and the charity of every one of you all toward each other aboundeth; 4So that we ourselves glory in you in the churches of God for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that ye endure: 5Which is a manifest token of the righteous judgment of God, that ye may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which ye also suffer: (KJV)
