This thought is in harmony with what Paul had just said. Not only were the Thessalonians being persecuted, but God knew what they were experiencing. Not only was He aware of their work of faith, their labor of love, and their patience of hope, but the persecution was occurring in His sight. How comforting! Now we see that, in addition, God knew the Thessalonians before they knew Him. Or, to state the matter more personally, God knows us before we know Him.
