1 Thessalonians 2:4

4 1but just as we have been approved by God to be 2entrusted with the gospel, so we speak, 3not as pleasing men, but God who 4examines our hearts.

1 Thessalonians 2:4 In-Context

2 but after we had already suffered and been mistreated in Philippi, as you know, we had the boldness in our God to speak to you the gospel of God amid much opposition.
3 For our exhortation does not come from error or impurity or by way of deceit;
4 but just as we have been approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel, so we speak, not as pleasing men, but God who examines our hearts.
5 For we never came with flattering speech, as you know, nor with a pretext for greed -God is witness -
6 nor did we seek glory from men, either from you or from others, even though as apostles of Christ we might have asserted our authority.
