Paul Remembers His Visit to the Church in Thessalonica
Today's Passage: 1 Thessalonians 2:13-16
Get to know your bible. It will become a good friend.
Or find the passage NASB version on Bible Gateway here.
You can search for other versions there as well. Versions even in foreign languages.
Or, for your convenience I have typed the verses below from the
New Living Testament (NLT).
13. Therefore, we never stop thanking God
that when you received his message from us,
you didn't think of our words as mere human ideas.
You accepted what we said as the very word of God ⏤ which,
of course, it is.
And this word continues to work in you who believe.
14. And then, dear brothers and sisters,
you suffered persecution from your own countrymen.
In this way you imitated the believers in God's churches in Judea who,
because of their belief in Christ Jesus,
suffered from their own people, the Jews.
15. For some of the Jews killed the prophets,
and some even killed the Lord Jesus.
Now they have persecuted us, too.
They fail to please God and work against all humanity
16. as they try to keep us from preaching
the Good News of salvation to the Gentiles.
By doing this, they continue to pile up their sins.
But the anger of God has caught up with them at last.
1 Thessalonians 2:13-16 NLT
