Three things: your work of faith, labor of love, and steadfastness of hope. As noted above, the themes of faith, love, and hope form a familiar trio in Paul's letters. These three themes can also be recognized as having provided the Page 41 broad structure for this letter.

To Whom Were These Letters Written? Both letters specify the addressee as the church of the Thessalonians. A few words about the city of Thessalonica will help us to envision this congregation and its relationship to its environment. During the time when this congregation emerged, Thessalonica was a major urban center in the Roman province of Macedonia. The Via Egnatia, a road running from the Adriatic Sea to the Black Sea, passed right through Thessalonica, connecting it with other cities in the Roman world.
1:4-9; 2 Cor. 1:3-7; Phil. 1:3-11; Rom. 1:8-17). In this too, Paul follows the customary epistolary form of his time. One exception is Galatians, where Paul appears to have been too upset to express gratitude. In 1 Thessalonians the theme of thanksgiving begins with 1:2-10 but then resumes in 2:13 and again in 3:9. The leading assertion, We give thanks, sets the tone and establishes the direction for this entire paragraph. Grammatically 1:2-10 can be considered as one rather unwieldy sentence which first states the reasons for thanksgiving (1:2-4) and then narrates the underlying Page 40 story of the emergence of the Christian community in Thessalonica (1:5-10).
