God’s Witnesses – 1 Thessalonians 2

1 Thessalonians 2:1 For yourselves, brethren, know our entrance in unto  you, that it was not in vain: 

1 Thessalonians 2:2 But even after that we had  suffered before, and were shamefully entreated, as ye know,  at Philippi, we were bold in our God to speak unto you the  gospel of God with much contention. 

1 Thessalonians 2:3 For our  exhortation was not of deceit, nor of uncleanness, nor in  guile: 

1 Thessalonians 2:4 But as we were allowed of God to be put in  trust with the gospel, even so we speak; not as pleasing  men, but God, which trieth our hearts. 

1 Thessalonians 2:5 For neither at  any time used we flattering words, as ye know, nor a cloke  of covetousness; God is witness: 

1 Thessalonians 2:6 Nor of men sought  we glory, neither of you, nor yet of others, when we might  have been burdensome, as the apostles of Christ. 

1 Thessalonians 2:7 But  we were gentle among you, even as a nurse cherisheth her  children: 

1 Thessalonians 2:8 So being affectionately desirous of you, we  were willing to have imparted unto you, not the gospel of  God only, but also our own souls, because ye were dear  unto us. 

1 Thessalonians 2:9 For ye remember, brethren, our labour and  travail: for labouring night and day, because we would not  be chargeable unto any of you, we preached unto you the  gospel of God.

1 Thessalonians 2:10 Ye are witnesses, and God also,  how holily and justly and unblameably we behaved  ourselves among you that believe: 

1 Thessalonians 2:11 As ye know how  we exhorted and comforted and charged every one of you,  as a father doth his children, 

1 Thessalonians 2:12 That ye would walk  worthy of God, who hath called you unto his kingdom and  glory.  

1 Thessalonians 2:13 For this cause also thank we God without ceasing,  because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard  of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is  in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in  you that believe. 

1 Thessalonians 2:14 For ye, brethren, became followers  of the churches of God which in Judaea are in Christ Jesus:  for ye also have suffered like things of your own  countrymen, even as they have of the Jews: 

1 Thessalonians 2:15 Who  both killed the Lord Jesus, and their own prophets, and have  persecuted us; and they please not God, and are contrary to  all men: 

1 Thessalonians 2:16 Forbidding us to speak to the Gentiles that  they might be saved, to fill up their sins alway: for the wrath  is come upon them to the uttermost.   

1 Thessalonians 2:17 But we, brethren, being taken from you for a short  time in presence, not in heart, endeavoured the more  abundantly to see your face with great desire. 

1 Thessalonians 2:18  Wherefore we would have come unto you, even I Paul, once  and again; but Satan hindered us. 

1 Thessalonians 2:19 For what is our  hope, or joy, or crown of rejoicing? Are not even ye in the  presence of our Lord Jesus Christ at his coming? 

1 Thessalonians 2:20 For  ye are our glory and joy.
