This week we continue with part 2 of "A Life Pleasing to God" as Pastor Randy leads us through 1 Thessalonians 4:9-12. God is committed to our holiness and chips away at our imperfections to remove all impediments that keep us from becoming more like Jesus. In a series of brief and pointed exhortations, Paul encourages the ongoing process of sanctification in our lives by pointing us toward quiet living and ‘brotherly love’.
1 Thessalonians 4:9-12
9 Now concerning brotherly love you have no need for anyone to write to you, for you yourselves have been taught by God to love one another, 10 for that indeed is what you are doing to all the brothers throughout Macedonia. But we urge you, brothers, to do this more and more, 11 and to aspire to live quietly, and to mind your own affairs, and to work with your hands, as we instructed you, 12 so that you may walk properly before outsiders and be dependent on no one.
