1 Thessalonians 2:19; 1 Thessalonians 3:9; 1 Thessalonians 4:2

19 For who is our hope or joy or crown of exultation? Is it not even you, in the presence of our Lord Jesus at His coming?
9 For what thanks can we render to God for you in return for all the joy with which we rejoice before our God on your account,
2 For you know what commandments we gave you by the authority of the Lord Jesus.
