The Church that is about Jesus Christ is to move immature believers to mature. Paul prays for the maturity of the Saints. We should pray that believers understand the richness of Jesus Christ through His Word.
1 Thessalonians 5:12-13
And we urge you, brethren, to recognize those who labor among you, and are over you in the Lord and admonish you, and to esteem them very highly in love for their work's sake. Be at peace among yourselves.
1 Thessalonians 3:11-13
Now may our God and Father Himself, and our Lord Jesus Christ, direct our way to you. And may the Lord make you increase and abound in love to one another and to all, just as we do to you, so that He may establish your hearts blameless in holiness before our God and Father at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all His saints.

What does the initial summation of Hezekiah's reign teach us? 2Kings 18:1–8 looks forward to the first serial reading in morning public worship on the coming Lord's Day.
