1 Thessalonians 3:1-5 (The Message)

View In My Bible
1 So when we couldn't stand being separated from you any longer and could find no way to visit you ourselves, we stayed in Athens 2 and sent Timothy to get you up and about, cheering you on so you wouldn't be discouraged by these hard times. He's a brother and companion in the faith, God's man in spreading the Message, preaching Christ. 3 Not that the troubles should come as any surprise to you. You've always known that we're in for this kind of thing. It's part of our calling. 4 When we were with you, we made it quite clear that there was trouble ahead. And now that it's happened, you know what it's like. 5 That's why I couldn't quit worrying; I had to know for myself how you were doing in the faith. I didn't want the Tempter getting to you and tearing down everything we had built up together.
