23 May God Himself, the God Who makes everything holy and whole, make you holy and whole, put you together — spirit, soul, and body — and keep you fit for the coming of our Master, Jesus Christ. 24 The One Who called you is completely dependable. If He said it, He'll do it!
28 The amazing grace of Jesus Christ be with you!
