A Community of Faith, Love, and Hope
What would you do if you came to faith in Jesus and faced persecution almost immediately? Would you turn back? Would you re-evaluate? Would you walk away from Jesus? Or would you stay faithful?
This is the background of Paul's letter to the Thessalonian church. They were staying faithful in the face of persecution. They were committed to their faith. They were growing in their love. And they were clinging to their hope in Christ's coming.
They were truly a community of faith, love, and hope.
