This is located in the NKJV Spirit-Filled Bible Third Edition. In 1st Thessalonians Paul reminds us to keep the hope in knowing that Jesus Christ is going to return and take us home.
It is true that we are fully and completely sanctified, made holy in Jesus. It is equally true that God calls us to work out that sanctification on the way we live our lives. It is working out practically what God has already worked into us. In 1 Thessalonians, pursuing holiness means living a life worthy of God by the power of the Holy Spirit, always remembering that you are called into His kingdom and glory.
Conduct your life so that it reflects the glory and kingdom of God, which you belong. Set as your goal to live worthy of God.
Be holy, sanctification is God’s will for your life. Keep away from all sexual activity outside of marriage. Behave with honor and purity in all of your relationships.
Live in holiness, for to this God has called you. Remember that God has given you His Holy Spirit. His power is in you; draw on it.
Submit your whole spirit, soul, and body completely to the sanctifying work of God, the God of peace.
We need to conduct ourselves in a manner that is worthy of God and that glorifies God. We are His vessels, the Holy Spirit works through us to show the love of God and if we are not showing God’s love, we need to be on our knees asking for forgiveness and direction. God loved us so much He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to earth to die for us and by excepting Him as our savior we should be glad to be about God’s work on this earth. He want us to tell others about the sacrifice His Son made for all of us so everyone has the opportunity for Salvation and you may be the one that God uses to bring someone to Jesus, who was destined for hell.
