Background

Matthew Henry's Commentary

I Thessalonians 1:4​

https://www.biblegateway.com/resources/matthew-henry/1Thess.1.2-1Thess.1.5

"He [the apostle] mentions the fountain whence these graces flow, namely, God’s electing love: Knowing, brethren beloved, your election of God, 1 Thess. 1:4. Thus he runs up these streams to the fountain, and that was God’s eternal election. Some by their election of God would understand only the temporary separation of the Thessalonians from the unbelieving Jews and Gentiles in their conversion; but this was according to the eternal purpose of him who worketh all things according to the counsel of his own will, Eph. 1:11. Speaking of their election, he calls them, brethren beloved; for the original of the brotherhood that is between Christians and the relation wherein they stand one to another is election. And it is a good reason why we should love one another, because we are all beloved of God, and were beloved of him in his counsels when there was not any thing in us to merit his love. [...]"
