Dear Followers of Jesus,
I write this urgent letter to you because the end of the world is coming soon.
Therefore, be earnest and disciplined in your prayers.
Continue to show deep love for each other.
God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts.
Use them well to serve one another.
Do it with all the strength and energy that God supplies.
Then everything you do will bring glory to God through Jesus Christ.
Don’t be surprised at the fiery trials you are going through.
Instead, be very glad – for these trials make you partners with Christ.
So, be happy when you are insulted for being a Christian, for then the glorious Spirit of God rests upon you.
It is no shame to suffer for being a Christian.
Praise God for the privilege of being called by His name!
Keep on doing what is right.
Trust your lives to the God who created you, for He will never fail you.
Humble yourselves under the mighty power of God, and at the right time, He will lift you up in honor.
Give all your worries and cares to God, for He cares about you!
Watch out for your great enemy, the devil.
He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour.
Stand firm against him, and be strong in your faith.
After you have suffered a little while, God will restore, support, and
He will place you on a firm foundation.
Stand firm in His grace.
Remember these words from Psalms:
Put your hope in His Word.
Never forget His commandments, for by them He gives you life!
In the Name of the One who forgives every sinner – even a poor soul who once denied Him…
