3 My prayer is that God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ will be kind to you and will bless you with peace!
4 I never stop thanking my God for being kind enough to give you Christ Jesus,
5 who helps you speak and understand so well.
6 Now you are certain that everything we told you about our Lord Christ Jesus is true.
7 You are not missing out on any blessings, as you wait for him to return.
8 And until the day Christ does return, he will keep you completely innocent.
9 God can be trusted, and he chose you to be partners with his Son, our Lord Jesus Christ.
