27 Only conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or remain absent, I will hear of you that you are standing firm in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel;
30 experiencing the same conflict which you saw in me, and now hear to be in me.
28 Therefore I have sent him all the more eagerly so that when you see him again you may rejoice and I may be less concerned about you.
9 The things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.
