1 Thessalonians 1:7–so that you became an example to all the believers in Macedonia and Achaia.
Paul is writing to the believers in Thessalonica and encouraging them because they have a reputation of being an example of how to live the Christian life. We are all examples of something, whether good or bad. If we are seeking to imitate Christ it will show in our lives and others will see it.
Lord, I praise You and I desire to live my life like You everyday. I want to be an example to others how to live their life following Jesus.
