conduct yourselves in a manner
worthy of the gospel of Christ.
Then, whether I come and see you
or only hear about you in my absence,
I will know that you stand firm
in the one Spirit,
striving together as one
for the faith of the gospel
without being frightened in any way
by those who oppose you.
This is a sign to them that they will be destroyed,
but that you will be saved —
and that by God.
