Now we exhort you, brethren, warn them that are unruly, comfort the feebleminded, support the weak, be patient toward all men. See that none render evil for evil unto any man; but ever follow that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all men. Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of GOD in Christ Jesus concerning you. Quench not the Spirit. Despise not prophesyings. Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. Abstain from all appearance of evil. And the very GOD of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray GOD your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Faithful is He that calleth you, who also will do it. (1Th 5:14-24)
Our bodies are to be a living sacrifice, presented unto GOD, holy and acceptable, conformed to His image and not this world. Our minds are to be on Christ, renewed by the Word of GOD and thinking His thoughts after Him. Our spirits are to be sanctified and cleansed, not returning to the beggarly elements of this world, but resurrected and alive in Christ. Our emotions are to under His control that the fruit of the Spirit may grow and reproduce. Every thing we are is to be surrendered to Him just as it was when we received His great Salvation from our sins through repentance and faith in His finished and perfect work on the Cross of Calvary in our place.
As His sanctified saints, we are to serve Him and minister to those around us who are hurting and in need, on mission for our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. As His disciples we are to love one another as He loved us, and disciple one another in His Word, until we all grow up into the full measure of Him. As His witnesses, we are to take the Good News of reconciliation with the Father to this lost and dying world, and as we go, in the power of the Holy Spirit that is within us, we proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ that all that believe in Him and Him alone might have life in His Name.
For GOD is not willing that any should perish, but that all would come to repentance and the knowledge of the the Truth. Jesus loves you and wants to establish a covenant relationship with you that is real and personal. Surrender to Him on His terms and He will give you a brand new life of discipleship and fellowship with Him that is abundant and everlasting. GOD calls you to trust Him and what He has already done for you to pay your sIn debt. He has provided the only way of reconciliation with GOD, forgiveness from GOD, and Salvation through Jesus Christ, the Son of GOD who is GOD the Son, to give you a new life in Christ. Turn away from yourself and your sIn and turn to Him alone for eternal Life, now and always.
