1 These 4:1 (AMP): Finally believers, we ask and admonish
you in the Lord Jesus, that you follow the instruction that you
received from us about how you ought to walk and please God
(just as you are actually doing) and that you excel even more
and more [pursuing a life of purpose and living in a way that
expresses gratitude to God for your salvation].

of the Lord.

caught up and taken to heaven so that he would not have a
glimpse of death; and he was not found because God had taken
him; for even before he was taken [to heaven], he received the
testimony [still on record] that he had walked with God and
pleased Him.

“Hosea 6:6 (TLB): I don’t want your sacrifices—I want your
love; I don’t want your offerings—I want you to know me.
(MSG) I’m after love that lasts, not more religion. I want you to
know God, not go to more prayer meetings.
