when he returns, we can live with him forever. So encourage each other
and build each other up, just as you are already doing.
Dear brothers and sisters, honor those who are your leaders in the Lord’s
work. They work hard among you and give you spiritual guidance. Show
them great respect and wholehearted love because of their work. And live
peacefully with each other.
Brothers and sisters, we urge you to warn those who are lazy. Encourage
those who are timid. Take tender care of those who are weak. Be patient
with everyone.
See that no one pays back evil for evil, but always try to do good to each
other and to all people.
Always be joyful. Never stop praying. Be thankful in all circumstances,
for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.
Do not stifle the Holy Spirit. Do not scoff at prophecies, but test everything that is said. Hold on to what is good. Stay away from every kind
of evil.
Now may the God of peace make you holy in every way, and may your
whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless until our Lord Jesus
Christ comes again. God will make this happen, for he who calls you is
faithful.
Dear brothers and sisters, pray for us.
Greet all the brothers and sisters with a sacred kiss.
I command you in the name of the Lord to read this letter to all the
brothers and sisters.
May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.
