When the New Testament writers, led by the Holy Spirit, ended their letters to churches or people, their closings often offer the final concerns and instructions. These are the final directions for the church to pay attention to as he closes the letter. Paul’s concern in these final instructions is found in 1 Thessalonians 5:23.
Now may the God of peace himself sanctify you completely, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. (1 Thessalonians 5:23 ESV)
