Chapter VII.—Exhortation to
consistency of conduct.
Ye have been the disciples of Paul and Peter; do not
lose what was committed to your trust. Keep in remembrance Euodias,12431243 your
deservedly-blessed pastor, into whose hands the government over you was
first entrusted by the apostles. Let us not bring disgrace upon our
Father. Let us prove ourselves His true-born children, and not bastards.
Ye know after what manner I have acted among you. The things which, when
present, I spoke to you, these same, when absent, I now write to you.
“If any man love not the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be
Anathema.”12441244 Be ye followers of
me.12451245 My soul be for yours, when I attain
to Jesus. Remember my bonds.12461246
