The Living Word

2 Thessalonians 1: 2-4

New International Version

2: Grace and peace to you from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

3: We ought always to thank God for you, brothers and sisters,[a] and rightly so, because your faith is growing more and more, and the love all of you have for one another is increasing.

4: Therefore, among God’s churches we boast about your perseverance and faith in all the persecutions and trials you are enduring.
