1 Thessalonians 1:10; 1 Thessalonians 2:13; 1 Thessalonians 3:9; 1 Thessalonians 5:24

10 And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come .
13 For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe .
9 For what thanks can we render to God again for you, for all the joy wherewith we joy for your sakes before our God;
24 Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.
