Paul commended the church for their testimony being brought up everywhere he went.  Every church in the known world at that time knew about the Thessalonians.  What they did to earn this reputation is something we should do.  What should Christians do in gratitude to God, according to 1 Thessalonians 2:12?

-Pray without ceasing-

-Hold fast truth-

-Walk worthy of God-

-Tithe-
