1 Thessalonians 4:7-13

For God did not call us to uncleanness but to holiness. Therefore, he who rejects this is not rejecting man but God, the very one who gives his Holy Spirit to you.

And concerning brotherly love you have no need to be written to, for you are instructed by God himself in love for one another, and indeed you do this to all the brothers in the whole of Macedonia. But we encourage you, brothers, to increase still more and to seek the honour of living quietly and doing your own things and working with your [own] hands, just as we preached to you, so that you may walk gracefully before the outside world and have no need of anyone.

But we do not want you to be ignorant, brothers, concerning those who have fallen asleep, so that you will not mourn like the rest who have no hope.
