Bible: 1 Thess 5:12-28
5:12 Now we ask you, brothers and sisters, 1 to acknowledge those who labor among you and preside over you in the Lord and admonish you, 5:13 and to esteem them most highly in love because of their work. Be at peace among yourselves. 5:14 And we urge you, brothers and sisters, 2 admonish the undisciplined, comfort the discouraged, help the weak, be patient toward all. 5:15 See that no one pays back evil for evil to anyone, but always pursue what is good for one another and for all. 5:16 Always rejoice, 5:17 constantly pray, 5:18 in everything give thanks. For this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. 5:19 Do not extinguish the Spirit. 5:20 Do not treat prophecies with contempt. 5:21 But examine all things; hold fast to what is good. 5:22 Stay away from every form of evil.
5:23 Now may the God of peace himself make you completely holy and may your spirit and soul and body be kept entirely blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 5:24 He who calls you is trustworthy, and he will in fact do this. 3 5:25 Brothers and sisters, 4 pray for us too. 5:26 Greet all the brothers and sisters 5 with a holy kiss. 5:27 I call on you solemnly in the Lord 6 to have this letter read to all the brothers and sisters. 7 5:28 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. 8
