The Collection for Jerusalem

16Now regarding your question about the money being collected for God's people in Jerusalem. You should follow the same procedure I gave to the churches in Galatia.G1161G4012G3048G1519G40G5618G1299G1577G1053G2532G3779G4160G5210 2On the first day of each week, you should each put aside a portion of the money you have earned. Don't wait until I get there and then try to collect it all at once.G2596G3391G4521G5087G1538G5216G5087G3844G1438G2343G3748G302G2137G3363G1096G3363G3048G5119G3752G2064 3When I come, I will write letters of recommendation for the messengers you choose to deliver your gift to Jerusalem.G1161G3752G3854G3739G1437G1381G1223G1992G5128G3992G667G5216G5485G1519G2419 4And if it seems appropriate for me to go along, they can travel with me.G1161G1437G5600G514G4198G2504G4198G4862G1698

Paul’s Final Instructions

5I am coming to visit you after I have been to Macedonia, for I am planning to travel through Macedonia.G1161G2064G4314G5209G3752G1330G3109G1063G1330G3109 6Perhaps I will stay awhile with you, possibly all winter, and then you can send me on my way to my next destination.G1161G5177G3887G2228G2532G3914G4314G5209G2443G5210G4311G3165G4311G3757G1437G4198 7This time I don't want to make just a short visit and then go right on. I want to come and stay awhile, if the Lord will let me.G1063G2309G3756G1492G5209G737G1722G3938G1161G1679G1961G5100G5550G4314G5209G1437G2962G2010 8In the meantime, I will be staying here at Ephesus until the Festival of Pentecost.G1161G1961G1722G2181G2193G4005 9There is a wide-open door for a great work here, although many oppose me.G1063G3173G2374G2532G1756G455G3427G2532G4183G480 10When Timothy comes, don't intimidate him. He is doing the Lord's work, just as I am.G1161G1437G5095G2064G991G2443G1096G4314G5209G870G1063G2038G2041G2962G5613G1473G2532 11Don't let anyone treat him with contempt. Send him on his way with your blessing when he returns to me. I expect him to come with the other believers.G1848G3361G5100G3767G1848G846G1161G4311G846G4311G1722G1515G2443G2064G4314G3165G1063G1551G846G3326G80 12Now about our brother Apollos—I urged him to visit you with the other believers, but he was not willing to go right now. He will see you later when he has the opportunity.G1161G4012G80G625G3870G4183G3870G846G2443G2064G4314G5209G3326G80G2532G2307G2258G3756G3843G2443G2064G3568G1161G2064G3752G2119 13Be on guard. Stand firm in the faith. Be courageous. Be strong.G1127G4739G1722G4102G407G2901 14And do everything with love.G1096G3956G5216G3956G1096G1722G26 15You know that Stephanas and his household were the first of the harvest of believers in Greece, and they are spending their lives in service to God's people. I urge you, dear brothers and sisters,G1161G3870G5209G80G1492G3614G4734G3754G2076G536G882G2532G5021G1438G1519G1248G40 16to submit to them and others like them who serve with such devotion.G2532G2443G5210G5293G5108G2532G3956G4903G2532G2872 17I am very glad that Stephanas, Fortunatus, and Achaicus have come here. They have been providing the help you weren't here to give me.G1161G5463G1909G3952G4734G2532G5415G2532G883G3754G5303G5216G3778G378 18They have been a wonderful encouragement to me, as they have been to you. You must show your appreciation to all who serve so well.G1063G373G1699G4151G2532G5216G3767G1921G5108

Paul’s Final Greetings

19The churches here in the province of Asia send greetings in the Lord, as do Aquila and Priscilla and all the others who gather in their home for church meetings.G1577G773G782G5209G207G2532G4252G782G5209G4183G1722G2962G4862G1577G2596G846G3624 20All the brothers and sisters here send greetings to you. Greet each other with Christian love.G3956G80G782G5209G782G240G1722G40G5370 21HERE IS MY GREETING IN MY OWN HANDWRITING—PAUL.G783G3972G1699G5495 22If anyone does not love the Lord, that person is cursed. Our Lord, come!G1536G5368G3756G2962G2424G5547G2277G331G3134 23May the grace of the Lord Jesus be with you.G5485G2962G2424G5547G3326G5216 24My love to all of you in Christ Jesus.G3450G26G3326G5216G3956G1722G5547G2424G281
