We continually remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labour prompted by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Thessalonians 1 verse 3.
Paul was commending the Thessalonian Christians in their walk with the Lord. Their work was founded on their faith in Christ and it was based on love. And they didn’t give up. They kept on going on going on. Do we give up easily when things get hard, and is our faith strong in the face of persecution, and above all, are we known for our love?
