Bible: 1 Thessalonians 1:6-8

1:6 And you became imitators of us and of the Lord, when you received 1  the message with joy that comes from the Holy Spirit, despite great affliction. 1:7 As a result you became an example 2  to all the believers in Macedonia and in Achaia. 1:8 For from you the message of the Lord 3  has echoed forth not just in Macedonia and Achaia, but in every place reports of your faith in God have spread, 4  so that we do not need to say anything.
