Like a tender shepherd, Paul wrote these two letters to the church he founded in Thessalonica, a huge city in Macedonia. These were people he knew and loved. Friends he missed. Paul’s purpose in writing was to thank the people for their work of faith, their labor of love, and their continued hope in the Lord Jesus Christ...and in His coming again. He was also eager to remind them of the example that their faithfulness was to those around them.
Similarly, Paul’s letter to Titus--a young pastor in Crete--is filled with personal affirmation and counsel, helping him to prepare church leaders for effective evangelism.
