1 Thessalonians 1:1 (ESV)
Silvanus, and Timothy,
To the church of the Thessalonians in God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ:
Grace to you and peace.
We begin with the introduction/greeting to the church in Thessalonica. The letter was written around AD 51. Paul is writing the letter to encourage new believers to live a godly life.
I pray: O Lord, help me to trust in the faith you have given me and to walk according to your ways. Amen.
