Encouragement during Persecution
3Dear brothers and sisters,*1:3 Greek Brothers. we can’t help but thank God for you, because your faith is flourishing and your love for one another is growing.
7And God will provide rest for you who are being persecuted and also for us when the Lord Jesus appears from heaven. He will come with his mighty angels,
11So we keep on praying for you, asking our God to enable you to live a life worthy of his call. May he give you the power to accomplish all the good things your faith prompts you to do.
