1 Thessalonians 1

Thanksgiving for These Believers

1Paul and Silvanus and Timothy,

To the church of the Thessalonians in God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ: Grace to you and peace.

We give thanks to God always for all of you, making mention of you in our prayers; constantly bearing in mind your work of faith and labor of love and [a]steadfastness of hope [b]in our Lord Jesus Christ in the presence of our God and Father, knowing, brethren beloved by God, His choice of you; for our gospel did not come to you in word only, but also in power and in the Holy Spirit and with full conviction; just as you know what kind of men we [c]proved to be among you for your sake. You also became imitators of us and of the Lord, having received the word in much tribulation with the joy of the Holy Spirit, so that you became an example to all the believers in Macedonia and in Achaia. For the word of the Lord has sounded forth from you, not only in Macedonia and Achaia, but also in every place your faith toward God has gone forth, so that we have no need to say anything. For they themselves report about us what kind of a [d]reception we had [e]with you, and how you turned to God from [f]idols to serve [g]a living and true God, 10 and to wait for His Son from [h]heaven, whom He raised from the dead, that is Jesus, who rescues us from the wrath to come.

Knijga O Kristu

Prva poslanica Solunjanima 1

Vjera solunskih vjernika

Uvijek zahvaljujemo Bogu za vas i neprestano se za vas molimo.

Uvijek se pred svojim Bogom Ocem sjećamo vaših djela vjere, vašeg truda iz ljubavi te vaše postojanosti nadahnute nadom u našega Gospodina Isusa Krista.

Znamo, draga braćo i sestre, da vas je Bog izabrao za svoje.

Jer evanđelje koje smo vam donijeli nije se očitovalo samo u riječi, već i u sili Svetoga Duha, s potpunim i dubokim uvjerenjem u njegovu istinitost. A znate i da smo mi među vama živjeli kao dokaz istinitosti naše poruke.

Primili ste Riječ od Svetoga Duha s radošću unatoč velikim patnjama. U tomu ste slijedili nas i Gospodina.

Postali ste tako uzorom svim vjernicima u Makedoniji i u Ahaji.

Ne samo da je riječ Gospodnja od vas odjeknula po Makedoniji i po Ahaji, nego se o vašoj vjeri u Boga tako pročulo da o tomu više ljudima ne treba ni govoriti.

Sami pripovijedaju kako ste nas lijepo primili i kako ste se od idola obratili istinskome i živome Bogu da mu služite

10 te kako iščekujete da s neba ponovno dođe njegov Sin Isus, kojega je uskrisio od mrtvih i koji će nas izbaviti od strašnoga Božjega gnjeva koji je pred nama.
