Here is what I'm asking Euodia and Syntyche to do. I want them to agree with each other because they belong to the Lord.
My true companion, here is what I ask you to do. Help those women. They have served at my side. They have helped me spread the good news. So have Clement and the rest of those who have worked together with me. Their names are all written in the Book of Life.
Always be joyful because you belong to the Lord. I will say it again. Be joyful.
Let everyone know how gentle you are. The Lord is coming soon.
Don't worry about anything. Instead, tell God about everything. Ask and pray. Give thanks to him.
Then God's peace will watch over your hearts and your minds because you belong to Christ Jesus. God's peace can never be completely understood.
