1 Peter 5:12
By Silvanus, a faithful brother as I regard him, I have written briefly to you, exhorting and declaring that this is the true grace of God. Stand firm in it.
1 Thessalonians 3:2
And we sent Timothy, our brother and God's coworker in the gospel of Christ, to establish and exhort you in your faith.
Remember your leaders, those who spoke to you the word of God. Consider the outcome of their way of life, and imitate their faith.
Obey your leaders and submit to them, for they are keeping watch over your souls, as those who will have to give an account. Let them do this with joy and not with groaning, for that would be of no advantage to you.
I, Paul, write this greeting with my own hand. Remember my chains. Grace be with you.
