Bible: 1 Thessalonians 1:4-7

1:4 We know, 1  brothers and sisters 2  loved by God, that he has chosen you, 3  1:5 in that 4  our gospel did not come to you merely in words, 5  but in power and in the Holy Spirit and with deep conviction (surely you recall the character we displayed when we came among you to help you). 6 

1:6 And you became imitators of us and of the Lord, when you received 7  the message with joy that comes from the Holy Spirit, despite great affliction. 1:7 As a result you became an example 8  to all the believers in Macedonia and in Achaia.
