1 Thessalonians 3:1-5

1 So when we couldn't stand it any longer, we thought it was a good idea to stay on in Athens by ourselves,
2 and we sent you Timothy, who is our brother and God's coworker in the good news about Christ. We sent him to strengthen and encourage you in your faithfulness.
3 We didn't want any of you to be shaken by these problems. You know very well that we were meant to go through this.
4 In fact, when we were with you, we kept on predicting that we were going to face problems exactly like what happened, as you know.
5 That's why I sent Timothy to find out about your faithfulness when I couldn't stand it anymore. I was worried that the tempter might have tempted you so that our work would have been a waste of time.
