1 THESSALONIANS 5:22-24
22reject every kind of evil. 23May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 24The one who calls you is faithful, and he will do it.
5: 22-24 Christians cannot completely avoid every kind of evil, because we live in a sinful world. We can, however, make sure that we don’t give evil a foothold by avoiding tempting situations and concentrating on obeying God.
5: 23 This reference to the spirit, soul, and body is not so much about the distinct parts of a person as about the entire being of a person. This expression is Paul’s way of saying that God must be involved in every aspect of life. It is wrong to think that we can separate our spiritual lives from everything else, obeying God only in some ethereal sense or living for him only one day each week. The Lord loves us and cares about our whole person— soul, mind, spirit, and body. Paul prays this blessing as an encouragement and a request to God to give us the supernatural ability to stay blameless and holy.Tyndale. NIV Life Application Study Bible.
ON THE WAY HOME WALK WITH JESUS so that he can give you the ability to stay away from evil and have the strength to do so!!
