1 Thessalonians 2:11-13 The Passion Translation (TPT)

11 And you know how affectionately we treated each one of you, like a loving father cares for his own children. 12 We comforted and encouraged you and challenged you to adopt a lifestyle worthy of God, who invites you into his kingdom and glory.[a]

The Faithfulness of the Thessalonians

13 This is why we continually thank God for your lives, because you received our message wholeheartedly. You embraced it not as the fabrication of men but as the word of God. And the word continues to be an energizing force in you who believe.


  1. 1 Thessalonians 2:12 Our calling is a summons from God to enter into his glory. A possible hendiadys, “his own glorious kingdom.”
