SANCTIFY YOU COMPLETELY





Allow Jesus to Sanctify You Completely
 
SANCTIFY YOU COMPLETELY

1 Thessalonians 5:23  ISV  May the God of peace himself make you holy in every way. And may your whole being—spirit, soul, and body—remain blameless when our Lord Jesus, the Messiah, appears.

The Apostle Paul after establishing a number of churches said; 2 Corinthians 13:5 Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves.

Galatians 6:4 New International Version   “Each one should test their own actions. Then they can take pride in themselves alone, without comparing themselves to someone else,

As of late one or more notable Christians each week have bit the dust so to speak. They have come up short and the flesh eating bacteria call the social media attacks them as ravenous wolves.

Paul was facing similar problems in the churches he had founded.

Christians were not going on to maturity and were allowing all kinds of sins in their lives.

It is as if we are saying: “To hell with holiness I’m going to get mine and let grace cover my - -”

Paul’s writings were corrective for the most part, yes instructive at times but corrective always.

This being the case it behooves us to pay much attention to his Epistles.

The only thing that kept him from coming down much harder on his converts was his love for them as children.

For the next few days I will write about your whole being and call our attention to the function and failures of each part of our being as outlined by Paul.
