For you yourselves, brothers, are conscious that our coming among you was not without effect
1 Thessalonians 2:1 BBE
1Th 2:2 But after we had first undergone much pain and been cruelly attacked as you saw, at Philippi, by the help of God we gave you the good news without fear, though everything was against us.
1Th 2:4 But even as the good news was given to us by the approval of God, so we give it out; not as pleasing men, but God by whom our hearts are tested.
1Th 2:7 But we were gentle among you, like a woman caring for her little ones:
1Th 2:8 Even so, being full of loving desire for you, we took delight in giving you not only God’s good news, but even our lives, because you were dear to us.
1Th 2:12 So that your lives might be pleasing to God, who has given you a part in his kingdom and his glory.
1Th 2:13 And for this cause we still give praise to God, that, when the word came to your ears through us, you took it, not as the word of man, but, as it truly is, the word of God, which has living power in you who have faith.
1Th 2:19 For what is our hope or joy or crown of glory? Are not even you, before our Lord Jesus, at his coming?
1Th 2:20 For you are our glory and our joy.
