Bible: 2 Thess 1:1-4
1:1 From Paul 1 and Silvanus and Timothy, to the church of the Thessalonians 2 in God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 1:2 Grace and peace to you 3 from God the 4 Father and the Lord Jesus Christ!
1:3 We ought to thank God always for you, brothers and sisters, 5 and rightly so, 6 because your faith flourishes more and more and the love of each one of you all for one another is ever greater. 1:4 As a result we ourselves boast about you in the churches of God for your perseverance and faith in all the persecutions and afflictions you are enduring.
