“The Will of God…”

“The Will of God…”

Blessings folk!

Paul is exhorting the Thessalonians to continue walking in the Lord as they had been…and to excel even more!

He then gives insight into something that people often ask about…”what is the ‘will’ of God”?

1 Th 4:3-6

For this is the will of God, your sanctification; that is, that you abstain from sexual immorality;

that each of you know how to possess his own vessel in sanctification and honor,

not in lustful passion, like the Gentiles who do not know God;

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.

What is the will of God?
Our sanctification!
Our holiness!
Our purity!

He tells them/us how.

  • Abstain from sexual immorality
  • Know how to posses your own vessel (body) in sanctification/holiness and honor
  • Do not possess your Body in lustful/lust filled passion
  • Do not transgress your brother in sexual matters
  • Do not defraud your brother in sexual matters

Know that the Lord is the avenger of these things.

Paul had told them before.
Again, think on this.
Paul was with them just a few weeks.
Give close heed to all that is revealed in 1, 2 Thessalonians as to what he told them.

Now, he is warning them.

May we hear.
We have been forewarned.
