1 Thessalonians 1:9-10 (HCSB)

for they themselves report what kind of reception we had from you:how you turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God and to wait for His Son from heaven, whom He raised from the dead — Jesus, who rescues us from the coming wrath.

     “Wrath is coming,” writes Paul.  The Thessalonians had turned from idols to serve the living and true God.  They were waiting for His Son from heaven.  This is Jesus who is the only one who can save them/us from the wrath to come due to the sin of the world.  
      Wrath is coming, but Jesus saves, is what Paul wants the Thessalonians to understand.  There is deliverance from wrath.
     How about you, dear reader?  Will you be saved from the coming wrath of God upon sin?
