I beg you brothers, to listen patiently to this appeal, for I have written you but briefly.

So do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord's will is.
so that the lives you live may be worthy of your Master and wholly pleasing to him, and you may be fruitful in all kinds of good deeds, and may grow into fuller knowledge of God.

I am pressing toward the goal, for the prize to which God through Christ Jesus calls us upward.
