1 Thessalonians 1:7; 1 Thessalonians 2:4; 1 Thessalonians 2:10; 1 Thessalonians 2:13; 1 Thessalonians 4:14

7 So that ye were ensamples to all that believe in Macedonia and Achaia.
4 But as we were allowed of God to be put in trust with the gospel, even so we speak ; not as pleasing men, but God, which trieth our hearts.
10 Ye are witnesses, and God also, how holily and justly and unblameably we behaved ourselves among you that believe :
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 .
14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again , even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
