In his letters to the Corinthians, Paul focuses on how to resolve differences among church members. Paul urges the Corinthians to lead a unified church and reject the notion of individual rank within church membership. Paul asks church members to follow Christ, even if that means enduring suffering.

Paul's letter to Titus talks about proper church leadership. Paul says that a church bishop must teach things that are true and correct. Paul reiterates the richness and fullness of God's salvation. In his letter, Paul says that God offers salvation through the Holy Spirit's washing and regeneration.

Similarly, in his two letters to the Thessalonians, Paul encourages Christians to remain faithful even though they may suffer persecution for their faith. Paul writes that Christians can expect Jesus' return to come unexpectedly. He compares Jesus' return to a thief in the night. Paul also says that Christians can look forward to the resurrection of Christians that already died. He encourages Christians to avoid panic and fear and to continue to work hard and await Christ's return.
