I Thessalonians 1:3 Remembering without ceasing your work of faith, and labour of love, and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ, in the sight of God and our Father;
Paul remembered them and their work. Paul thought about them a lot. He thought of how they believed God. He had watched them work. He watched continue on in spite of what might be happening. They served God in difficult times and circumstances with patience and hope. He knew that God was pleased with them.
I want to be so careful to remember and pray for the people God has placed in my ministry. I want to always notice all that they are doing to bring honor and glory to the God of Heaven.
