1 Thessalonians 1:1-10
In this passage, we are introduced to a fledgling church afflicted by persecution and difficulty. Surprising to us, God indicates that this church is on very solid ground (the Gospel). As a result of the gospel, the Thessalonian church has become an exemplary faith community and a hub for the advancement of the mission. It would seem that any church that is willing to embrace its God-given calling and status could participate in the joys of being a gospel community.
