2 Thessalonians 1:1-6 GW

1 From Paul, Silas, and Timothy. To the church at Thessalonica united with God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
2 Good will and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ are yours!
3 We always have to thank God for you, brothers and sisters. It's right to do this because your faith is showing remarkable growth and your love for each other is increasing.
4 That's why we brag in God's churches about your endurance and faith in all the persecutions and suffering you are experiencing.
5 Your suffering proves that God's judgment is right and that you are considered worthy of his kingdom.
6 Certainly, it is right for God to give suffering to those who cause you to suffer.
