Wesley's Notes for 1 Thessalonians 1:3


1:3 Remembering in the sight of God - That is, praising him for it. Your work of faith - Your active, ever - working faith. And labour of love - Love continually labouring for the bodies or souls of men. They who do not thus labour, do not love. Faith works, love labours, hope patiently suffers all things.


People's Bible Notes for 1 Thessalonians 1:3


1Th 1:3 Remembering without ceasing. He states reasons for thankfulness. Your work of faith. Works which result from faith. Labour of love. Toil for others caused by love for them and for Christ. Patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ. Patient endurance of toil, hardship and persecution through a hope in Christ. Probably a hope that soon these would cease with the coming of Christ. The Thessalonians, as we learn, expected his speedy coming.

Discussion for 1 Thessalonians 1

    1 Thessalonians 1:5 For our gospel came not unto you in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Ghost, and in much assurance as ye know what manner of men we were among you for your sake. It was very important for the Gentile Church of Thessalonians to follow the gospel that Paul preach and wrote. They also follow Paul.

    Irene:Wrath is not Tribulation.Tribulation is not Wrath.Wrath is for nonbelievers,the lost,the dead. Tribulation comes to The Believers Washed by The Blood of The Lamb. Persecution and Tribulation started before His Birth and Keeps getting Worse until The Great Tribulation, Worse than The Holocaust. We must through much Tribulation enter The Kingdom of God.

    How could anyone read JUST v. 10 - and think Christians are going thru the tribulation. Yes, Christians will HAVE tribulation in this life - just as our example Jesus did. But that's mild compared with the WRATH to come on the unbelievers for - SEVEN YEARS. Those who claim otherwise seem to WANT to go through it. I wouldn't even mention the trib. if I th'ot I was going through it!!
