Sometimes He Just Tells You His Will

1 Thessalonians 4:3-7

God's Will

3 For this is the will of God, your sanctification; that is, that you abstain from sexual immorality; 4 that each of you knows how to possess his own vessel in sanctification and honor, 5 not in lustful passion, like the Gentiles who do not know God; 6 and that no man transgress and defraud his brother in the matter because the Lord is the avenger in all these things, just as we also told you before and solemnly warned you. 7 For God has not called us for the purpose of impurity but in sanctification.


There’s not much confusion on this one – He has called us to walk in moral purity, abstaining from sexual immorality, which means being good stewards of our bodies in holiness and honor. There is no room for lustful passion like in pagans who don’t know God.


Further, we are responsible for each other not defrauding (arousing a sexual desire in someone that they can’t righteously satisfy) but helping them live a sanctified life.


God will take vengeance on anyone who causes a brother to stumble. His will is plainly stated – He has not called us to live in impurity but in holiness. If we all pursued that course in our lives our culture would be positively impacted as well as our churches. Not nearly as many pastors and leaders would be falling into the enemy’s traps. Are you doing this aspect of God’s will? Good . . .
