Listen, dear friends, stand firm in Christ. Hold to what is true. Imitate mature followers of Christ. Keep your eyes on those who walk closely with Christ. Stay alert and grieve those who walk as enemies of the cross of Christ. Remember that our citizenship is in heaven. Eagerly await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ. He will transform our lowly bodies to be like His glorious body. Indeed, with all this in view, cheer one another to stand firm in the Lord.
