1Thessalonians, Chapter Four, Lesson One

SANCTIFIED BEHAVIOR           Page 6

V. 8 ** This is a very high standard. What if someone does not agree with this Biblical calling for "Sanctified Behavior"? What if they think, "Hey, this is a new millennium. We should just do our own thing. Don't try to tell me how to live?

This is not man's opinion! God, who gives His Holy Spirit to us who are redeemed, has also given this very important instruction on personal purity.

** If you reject this instruction, what else might you be rejecting?

Salvation - through the conviction and indwelling of the Holy Spirit. cf. Romans 8:9

EXTRICATE

** As you look back over today's passage, how would your describe the Thessalonian's spiritual
condition?

Very good! They actually did walk and please God!

DELINEATE

** Even though they wanted to please God with their daily walk, what could they do to improve their "Sanctified Behavior"?

"...abstain from sexual immorality..." by "possessing [their] own vessels in sanctification and honor."

EVALUATE

** What about us? Do we need to be aware of this instruction in the world we live in today?

Absolutely - We too need to possess our bodies in honor, by "holding back" or "keeping away" from the sin of this world so we can enjoy our own "Sanctified Behavior".

ACTIVATE

** If we hope to be victorious in this quest, we need to be fully prepared. Please look back with me to Romans 13:14 - Let's attempt to memorize this verse right now.

Having committed it to memory, let's commit our hearts to the application of its truth for the glory of our gracious God.
