1 Thessalonians 4:1 - 1 Finally, then, brothers, we ask and urge you in the Lord Jesus, that as you received from us how you ought to walk and to please God, just as you are doing, that you do so more and more. 


1 Thessalonians 4:2 - 2 For you know what instructions we gave you through the Lord Jesus. 


1 Thessalonians 4:3 - 3 For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you abstain from sexual immorality; 
Indicative: Fact of Who I am. (identity) 


Imperative: How I live. (behavior) 


Exodus 20:1-2 - 1 And God spoke all these words, saying, 
2”I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery.


1 Thessalonians 3:11-13 11 Now may our God and Father himself, and our Lord Jesus, direct our way to you, 12and may the Lord make you increase and abound in love for one another and for all, as we do for you, 13so that he may establish your hearts blameless in holiness before our God and Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus with all his saints. 


Ephesians 1:1 - 1 Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, 
To the saints who are in Ephesus, and are faithful in Christ Jesus: 


1 Corinthians 1:2 - 2 To the church of God that is in Corinth, to those sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints together with all those who in every place call upon the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, both their Lord and ours: 


Colossians 1:2 - 2 To the saints and faithful brothers in Christ at Colossae:Grace to you and peace from God our Father. 


1 Thessalonians 4:3 - 3 For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you abstain from sexual immorality; 


Genesis 1:26-28 - 26 Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” 27 So God created man in his own image,in the image of God he created him; 
male and female he created them. 28 And God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” 


Genesis 2:24-25 - 24 Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh. 25 And the man and his wife were both naked and were not ashamed. 


Genesis 4:1 - 1Now Adam knew Eve his wife, and she conceived and bore Cain, saying, “I have gotten a man with the help of the Lord.” 


Matthew 5:27-30 - 27 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ 28 But I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lustful intent has already committed adultery with her in his heart. 29 If your right eye causes you to sin, tear it out and throw it away. For it is better that you lose one of your members than that your whole body be thrown into hell. 30 And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. For it is better that you lose one of your members than that your whole body go into hell. 


1 Thessalonians 4:4-6 - 4 that each one of you know how to control his own body in holiness and honor, 5 not in the passion of lust like the Gentiles who do not know God; 6 that no one transgress and wrong his brother in this matter, because the Lord is an avenger in all these things, as we told you beforehand and solemnly warned you. 


QUOTE - Lust is a sexual desire that dishonors its object and disregards God. John Piper 


1 Thessalonians 4:7-8 - 7 For God has not called us for impurity, but in holiness. 8 Therefore whoever disregards this, disregards not man but God, who gives his Holy Spirit to you. 


QUOTE - “Lust is the craving for salt of a man who is dying of thirst” - Frederick Buechner 


1 Thessalonians 4:3 - 3 For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you abstain from sexual immorality; 


QUOTE - The heart’s desire for an ultimate object may be conquered, but it’s desire to have SOME object is unconquerable. The only way to dispossess the heart of an old affection is through the expulsive power of a new one. It is therefore only when admitted into the number of God’s children through faith in Jesus Christ that the spirit of adoption is poured out on us – it is then that the heart, brought under the mastery of one great, predominate, and supreme affection is delivered from the tyranny of all its former desires and the only way that deliverance is possible. The only way to break the hold of a beautiful object on the soul is to show it a more beautiful object (Jesus). Thomas Chalmers 


QUOTE - “Every man who knocks on the door of a brothel is looking for God,” said G. K. Chesterton 


1 Thessalonians 4:7-8 - 7 For God has not called us for impurity, but in holiness. 8 Therefore whoever disregards this, disregards not man but God, who gives his Holy Spirit to you.
