Keep on praying.
No matter what happens, always be thankful, 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.
Keep 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 that day when our Lord Jesus Christ comes again.
God, who calls you, is faithful; he will do this.
Dear brothers and sisters, pray for us.
Greet all the brothers and sisters in Christian love. a27
I command you in the name of the Lord to read this letter to all the brothers and sisters.
