Paul’s first letter to the Thessalonian Church, a community that also lived under Roman rule, reminds us of the importance Paul placed on “Kingdom currency” in the Thessalonian church – faith, love and hope “in our Lord Jesus Christ”, receptivity to the gospel, joy in the face of persecution, exemplary Christian lives, faithful and fearless sharing of the word of the Lord, and hope-filled lives.    These had all resulted because the Thessalonians had turned from idols to serve the living God.
