Rejoice always, pray constantly, give thanks in everything; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a shout, and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first.
I encourage you to seek to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business, and to work with your own hands.
We encouraged, comforted, and implored each one of you to live worthy of God.
We recall your work produced by faith, your labor motivated by love, and your endurance inspired by hope.
