1 Thessalonians 1:2 – I Thank God For You

Join us in the Project 345 reading plan as we read through the New Testament.

Context: Paul opens his letter to the Thessalonian church with thankfulness to God.  Note – The Bible never records a believer thanking another believer directly.  They always thank God for them.

1 Thessalonians 1:2 “We give thanks to God always for all of you, constantly mentioning you in our prayers…”

Observation: They are thanking God in prayer… always and constantly.  Verse 3 will continue by explaining what they are thanking God for: “your work of faith and labor of love and steadfastness of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.”

Application: I will spend time today thanking God for the faith in my wife, my family, many of my friends and those in my church.

Who are you thanking God for today?
