1 Thessalonians 1:7-10
So that you were ensamples to all that believe in Macedonia and Achaia.…
Example is like the press: a thing done is the thought printed, it may be repeated if it cannot be recalled; it has gone forth with a self-propagating power, and may run to the ends of the earth, and descend from generation to generation.
(H. Melvill, B. D.)
