1 Thessalonians 1:6-10

And you became imitators of us and of the Lord, welcoming the word in great tribulation with the joy of the Holy Spirit, so that you became an example for all the believers in Macedonia and Achaia. For from you was sounded forth the word of the Lord, not only in Macedonia and Achaia but in every place your belief in God has gone out, so that we have no need to tell of it. For they report about us, what sort of inroad we made among you, and how you turned toward God and away from idols, to serve the living and true God; and how you wait for his Son from heaven, he whom he raised from the dead: Jesus, our rescuer from the coming wrath.
