1 Thessalonians 1:6; 1 Thessalonians 2:19-20; 1 Thessalonians 3:9
You also became imitators of us and of the Lord , having received the word in much tribulation with the joy of the Holy Spirit,
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?
For you are our glory and joy.
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,
