In vv. 13-20, Paul reiterates his constant thanksgiving for the church's reception of the Gospel that he preached to them (v. 13). Paul knew that the Gospel really was at work in the church because the believers suffered for their faith as did the churches of Judea (vv. 14-16). This trial of persecution resulted in Paul being torn away from the church (v. 17), yet his desire to see them face to face increased all the more( vv. 17-18), because these believers that Paul evangelized and discipled are his glory and joy on the last day (vv. 19-20). The Main Point is in v. 17: "we endeavored the more eagerly and with great desire to see you face to face." This endeavor to see the church is a response to the situation of persecution and is based on his conviction that his ministry is measured by the end goal of the Lord Jesus' second coming.

that when you received the word of God, which you heard from us,
ἐδέξασθε οὐ λόγον ἀνθρώπων
you accepted it not as the word of men
ἀλλὰ καθώς ἐστιν ἀληθῶς λόγον θεοῦ
