“Finally, brothers,” writes Paul to the church at Corinth, “rejoice. Become mature, be encouraged, be of the same mind, be at peace, and the God of love and peace will be with you.” “Give no opportunity for stumbling to anyone.” (2 Corinthians 6:3) “Speak openly; [your] heart opened wide.” (2 Corinthians 6:11 ) Remember that “[you] are the sanctuary of the living God;” (2 Corinthians 6:16) and, as such, “complete [your] sanctification in the fear of God.” (2 Corinthians 7:1) “Wrong no one, corrupt no one, defraud no one.” (2 Corinthians 7:2) “Excel in everything — faith, speech, knowledge, and in all diligence, and in your love — excel also in this grace.” (2 Corinthians 8:7)
As you remember that the living God dwells within you, you walk in awe and joy simultaneously. In this grace is your maturity, your ability to be at peace and to be encouraged. God is love and peace; and He is with you.
“Finally, brothers, rejoice” in the unity of the Holy Spirit.
