1 Thessalonians 1:3; 1 Thessalonians 2:19; 1 Thessalonians 3:9; 1 Thessalonians 3:13

3 Remembering without ceasing your work of faith, and labour of love, and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ, in the sight of God and our Father;
19 For what is our hope, or joy, or crown of rejoicing ? Are not even ye in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ at his coming?
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;
13 To the end he may stablish your hearts unblameable in holiness before God, even our Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all his saints.
