1 Thessalonians 1:1-10, NLT
1 Thessalonians 1
Greetings from Paul
1This letter is from Paul, Silas,*1:1 Greek Silvanus, the Greek form of the name. and Timothy.
We are writing to the church in Thessalonica, to you who belong to God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
May God give you grace and peace.
The Faith of the Thessalonian Believers
2We always thank God for all of you and pray for you constantly.
4We know, dear brothers and sisters,*1:4 Greek brothers. that God loves you and has chosen you to be his own people.
8And now the word of the Lord is ringing out from you to people everywhere, even beyond Macedonia and Achaia, for wherever we go we find people telling us about your faith in God. We don’t need to tell them about it,
