The call of every Christian is to become more Christ like. There is a progressive path that unfolded for the Thessalonians. The sanctification they were experiencing was filled with God’s love that caused them to live quietly, take care of their own business, and work hard so that they could contribute rather than take from those around them. This path is also one that we are called to walk.
How can your
work be part of God’s sanctification in your life?
Does the way you live contribute more to those around you or does it take from those around you?
