It is God’s will that you should be sanctified – transformed into the image of Christ. 1 Thessalonians 4:3

Avoid sexual immorality. Learn to control your own body. Learn to live with your own wife. Learn to acquire a wife. Do not live in passionate lust like the heathen who do not know God. 1 Thessalonians 4:3-6

He who rejects this instruction does not reject man but God who gives you his Holy Spirit. 1 Thessalonians 4:8

Do not be dependent on anybody. 1 Thessalonians 4:12

A disciple realizes that it is his Lord’s honor that is at stake in his life, not his own honor.

Never look for righteousness in the other person, but never cease to be righteous yourself.

Never look for justice; never cease to give it.
