Seeking Holiness

3 God’s will is for you to be holy, so stay away from all sexual sin. 4 Then each of you will control his own body and live in holiness and honor— 5 not in lustful passion like the pagans who do not know God and his ways. 6 Never harm or cheat a fellow believer in this matter by violating his wife, for the Lord avenges all such sins, as we have solemnly warned you before. ~ 1 Thessalonians 4:3-6NLT

Paul tells us that God has an overall will for each and every one of us, and it’s not just to believe and be saved. It’s that we change and set off our filthy rags and seek Holiness. How do we do this?

By keeping away from sexual sin. Remember that every other sin is committed outside the body, but the sin of sexual immorality is a sin against the offender’s own body. So, keep away from it.

God wants us to be in control of our own bodies. Therefore, any addiction that you may have, from pornography to alcohol to cigarettes, are to be avoided at all cost if you want your relationship with God to grow and produce fruit.

If you’re diligent to do these things, God will hear you and answer your prayers.

Dear LORD, please give me self-control that I may overcome all sexual immorality in all of its forms and deceit. Teach me Your ways that I might grow in You. Help me to crucify my flesh daily that I might never be a slave to sin again. Teach me how to overcome through You. In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen
