Faith and Favor

Faith and Favor


Faith comes to us through the Word God gives
Welcoming of the Word preached is all that it takes
Thessalonians have received the Word to embrace
Paul thanks God for how they regard the Word proclaimed


Faith becomes mature as we abide by its rule
Imitating of Christians and Christ is the way to go
Thessalonians have become a model to follow
We thank God that we too can imitate others to grow


Divine favor is behind every good name people earn
Exercising of faith in God is how favor from above comes
The elders of faith remain a historic example in this regard
The faith we have can be inspiration to others in this life
