Now I want you to know, brothers and sisters, that what has happened to me has actually served to advance the gospel.
The latter do so out of love, knowing that I am put here for the defense of the gospel.
Whatever happens, 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
Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed--not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence--continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling,
