Holy and Blameless to the End
Scripture: 1 Thessalonians 5:11–5:28
As the Apostle Paul brings his first letter to the Thessalonians to a close, he leaves them with a series of general exhortations, demonstrating his expectation that this church will continue to function as the family of God, caring for one another and holding each other accountable to live as faithful Christians day by day. Faithful Christian living includes relational obligations as well as certain spiritual commitments and a dynamic dependence on the Holy Spirit. By these means, God will see to it that every one of his people will be completely holy on the day of our Lord's return.
