“We appeal to you, dear brothers and sisters, to instruct those who are not in their place of battle. Be skilled at gently encouraging those who feel themselves inadequate.
Be faithful to stand your ground. Help the weak to stand again. Be quick to demonstrate patience with everyone.
Resist revenge, and make sure that no one pays back evil in place of evil but always pursue doing what is beautiful to one another and to all the unbelievers.
Let joy be your continual feast.
Make your life a prayer.
And in the midst of everything be always giving thanks, for this is God’s perfect plan for you in Christ Jesus.
Never restrain or put out the fire of the Holy Spirit.
And don’t be one who scorns prophecies, but be faithful to examine them by putting them to the test, and afterward hold tightly to what has proven to be right.
Avoid every appearance of evil.
Now, may the God of peace and harmony set you apart, making you completely holy. And may your entire being—spirit, soul, and body—be kept completely flawless in the appearing of our Lord Jesus, the Anointed One. The one who calls you by name is trustworthy and will thoroughly complete his work in you.”
1 Thessalonians 5:14-24 TPT
