2 Thessalonians 1:4-6 New Life Version (NLV)
4 We are proud of you and tell the other churches about you. We tell them how your faith stays so strong even when people make it hard for you and make you suffer. 5 God wants you to prove yourselves to be worth being in His holy nation by suffering for Him. 6 He does what is right and will allow trouble to come to those who are making it hard for you.
