1 Thessalonians 2:4; 1 Thessalonians 2:6; 1 Thessalonians 2:13; 1 Thessalonians 4:8
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.
Nor of men sought we glory, neither of you, nor yet of others, when we might have been burdensome , as the apostles of Christ.
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 .
He therefore that despiseth , despiseth not man, but God, who hath also given unto us his holy Spirit.
