Be happy [in your faith] and rejoice and be glad hearted continually (always); be unceasing in prayer [praying perseveringly]; thank [God] in everything [no matter what the circumstances may be, be thankful and give thanks], for this is the will of God for you [who are] in Christ Jesus [the Revealer and Mediator of that will]. Do not quench (suppress or subdue) the [Holy] Spirit. —1 Thessalonians 5:16–19
Be thankful for everything, and be careful not to quench the Holy Spirit by complaining, or you will lose your joy. You can be glad hearted no matter what your circumstances are.
Renew your mind to God’s ideals and attitude (See Romans 12:2). If you spend time in God’s presence, you will think differently about yourself, and about the people around you. You will have the mind of Christ, and be full of His love.
