1 Thessalonians 1:8-10
The Lord's message rang out from you not only
in Macedonia and Achaia your faith in God
has become known everywhere.
Therefore we do not need
to say anything about it,
for they themselves report
what kind of reception you gave us.
They tell how you turned to God from idols
to serve the living and true God,
and to wait for his Son from heaven,
whom he raised from the dead Jesus,
who rescues us from the coming wrath.
