1 Thessalonians 1:5-8

because our gospel came to you
not simply with words,
but also with power,
with the Holy Spirit
and with deep conviction.
You know how we lived
among you for your sake.
You became imitators of us
and of the Lord;
in spite of severe suffering,
you welcomed the message
with the joy given by the Holy Spirit.
And so you became a model
to all the believers
in Macedonia and Achaia.
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,
