These two letters to the Thessalonians demonstrate how the Thessalonian church was a model church in the things that really matter. It was a very young church that made a quick impact on their region. Their labors were motivated by love and stemmed from their faith. What a sweet and mighty church this was. The Thessalonian church was visited by men who were turning the world upside down and they turned their world upside down. These are very personal, grateful, and tender letters. Paul wrote this letter to provide the Thessalonian church with the encouragement to stand fast and stay the course.
