Preserved Blameless

March 12, 2015

1 Thessalonians 5:23-24 KJV

23 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.

24 Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.

Good Morning Men!

Every chapter that I read in my Bible reading plan, I have been working on journaling my thoughts from each chapter. This chapter was loaded with nuggets, but as I scanned the chapter again no verse stood out like this verse.

I decided to use the King James Version because it  clearly was a prayer request from Paul towards the believers in Thessalonica, and since we are all united in the body of Christ, this prayer is also relevant for us today.

Let’s break this down.

1. God commands us to be sanctified, not just when it’s convenient but to be sanctified completely, to be set apart.

2. Your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless.

This is a very large prayer request, because I know how much sin and struggles I have to work through daily. Yet Paul prays this with such confidence, and conviction that our God not only wants to do this, but He will do this.

3. If God has called you, He will do it.

God will do what He promises in His Word. How do you know you are called? There is no exact recipe, but we love the Lord God with all our heart, all our mind and all our soul. He must be first in our lives, and we must bear fruits worthy of repentance.

Many of us today are faced with trials of all shapes and sizes.

Men I want to encourage you today, that God is greater than any problem. God wants to deliver you from any stronghold, and any sin that is holding you back from an intimate, rich and fruit bearing relationship with Him.

Ephesians 2:8-9

8 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves it is the gift of God, 9 not of works, lest anyone should boast. 

Psalm 95:7-8

7…Today, if you will hear His voice:
“Do not harden your hearts, as in the rebellion,…

Will you be an answer to this prayer from the Apostle Paul some 2000 years ago? Will you be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ?

    Amen. God has sanctified us through the death and resurrection of His son Jesus Christ. Through belief in Him, and only Him, are we sanctified.
