1 Thess 2:13-16

13 And we also thank God constantly[d] for this, that when you received the word of God, which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men[e] but as what it really is, the word of God, which is at work in you believers. 14 For you, brothers, became imitators of the churches of God in Christ Jesus that are in Judea. For you suffered the same things from your own countrymen as they did from the Jews,[f] 15 who killed both the Lord Jesus and the prophets, and drove us out, and displease God and oppose all mankind 16 by hindering us from speaking to the Gentiles that they might be saved—so as always to fill up the measure of their sins. But wrath has come upon them at last![g]

One response to “1 Thess 2:13-16

  1. Ethnicity and race caused them dislike their brothers and try to keep the Gospel from being preached to them. I can easily judge this and think ill of them. But to not share the Gospel because I don’t care about people’s souls is no different. We need to love people because Jesus loves them and died for them. We have the message of His love and forgiveness and we are His means in the earth to tell people about Christ.
