"For God has not destined us for wrath...but for obtaining salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ...who died for us, that whether we are awake or asleep, we may live together with Him." (I Thessalonians 5:9-10)
Fellow Chewers of the CUD...As we walk in our DESTINY (which is not wrath but salvation)...we are called to LIVE together with Him. The choice is to (1) live together awake (alive) or live together asleep (dead). I Thessalonians 5:11-22 lays out the practical ways to LIVE TOGETHER WITH HIM while we are ALIVE on Planet Earth until He returns. THEREFORE:
1. Encourage one another
2. Build up one another
3. Appreciate those who diligently labor among you
4. Appreciate those who have charge over you in the Lord
5. Appreciate those who give you instruction
6. Esteem those very highly those in charge over you/give you instruction
in love because of their work
7. Live in peace with one another
8. Admonish the unruly
9. Encourage the fainthearted
10 Help the weak
11 Be patient with all men
12.See that no one repays another with evil for evil
13 Always seek after that which is good for one another and for all men
14 Rejoice always
15 Pray without ceasing
16 In everything give thanks (the giving of thanks in everything is the will
of God...not everything that happens to you...but the giving of thanks in
17 Do not quench the Spirit
18 Do not despise prophetic utterances
19 Examine everything carefully and hold fast to that which is good
20 Abstain from every form/appearance of evil
"Now...may the God of peace Himself sanctify you entirely/totally/wholly; and may your spirit (pneuma), soul (psyche) and body (soma) be preserved complete, and without blame at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ." (I Thessalonians 5:23)
Well...there ya go. If you are sitting around and wondering what you can do until the Lord comes back...start with these 20 actions...and when you have those down pat...we will talk about other things you can do.
