In this final chapter, the apostle
Paul discusses a variety of issues, beginning with the love that we
should have for our brothers and sisters in Christ. This love should
also be extended to strangers because angels will show up at times
to test us. He reminds the readers that marriage is sacred and that
there is nothing wrong with marital relations. Paul then continued
by stating how discontent always leads to sin and that we should
never disrespect the people who brought us into the kingdom of God.
Jesus is an eternal rock that never changes and we need to be
vigilant about false doctrine. Jesus was rejected by the religious
establishment of His day, crucified outside the camp and likewise
wants us to bear his reproach, for with such is God pleased.
Therefore, we need to shun the religious organizations that
propagate false doctrine and remember that Jesus our Savior is the
same yesterday, today and forever.
