  1. Love this letter because of its positive remarks about the Thessalonians. Would that we followed their example. But, people are not so willing to jump on the bandwagon, are they? That is life both then and now. What a joy the Thessalonians were to Paul. What a reunion they must have had as one entered eternity and were reunited with Paul. Think about that …will we have the same reunion with others as we cross the threshold of heaven? That is my challenge, how about yours?

  2. Verse 6 says the Thessalonians had imitated Paul, Silas and Timothy, and thus the Lord. In other letters Paul had to encourage (or maybe prod) congregations to imitate him, and thus the Lord, as in:
    1 Corinthians 11:1 ​Be imitators of me, as I am of Christ. (ESV)
