Paul, under the Holy Spirit's guidance sees fit to include much personal correspondence in the letter of 1 Thessalonians. This material gives us a window into authentic Christian ministry. In chapter 3:1-5 we see Paul's heart for the Thessalonians and his concern for their spiritual well being in the midst of persecution. Paul reminds them that suffering affliction for Christ is a Christian norm. We as American Christians would do well to think on that truth.
