New International Version (NIV)
Life Worthy of the Gospel
27 Whatever happens, conduct yourselves in a manner worthy(A) of the gospel of Christ. Then, whether I come and see you or only hear about you in my absence, I will know that you stand firm(B) in the one Spirit,[a] striving together(C) as one for the faith of the gospel28 without being frightened in any way by those who oppose you. This is a sign to them that they will be destroyed, but that you will be saved—and that by God.29 For it has been granted to you(D) on behalf of Christ not only to believe in him, but also to suffer(E) for him,30 since you are going through the same struggle(F) you saw(G) I had, and now hear(H) that I still have.
