(1Th 5:23) Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and may your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

(1Th 5:24) He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it.

(1Th 5:25) Brethren, pray for us.

(1Th 5:26) Greet all the brethren with a holy kiss.

(1Th 5:27) I charge you by the Lord that this epistle be read to all the holy brethren.

(1Th 5:28) The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.

What a beautiful prayer to pray; for the Lord Himself to sanctify you, to set you apart for His glory, to preserve you blameless at His coming. What could be better than being completely and wholly set apart from the world and ready for the coming of the glorious Jesus Christ Himself? Our Lord that calls you is faithful to bring you through to an eternal life with Him.

Paul closes his letter to the Thessalonians with a few last requests and instructions. Paul says Brethren, pray for us… we need to pray for everyone even if we think they don’t need it. Our leaders need our prayers and Paul was not above asking for it. Greet all the brethren with a holy kiss… Love one another and let it be known. Paul says this epistle is for everyone in the church to read and share it. Paul wouldn’t be able to teach them in person so he wanted to make sure the whole church new his love for them.

The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen…. The apostle Paul 1 Thessalonians 5:28
