The pursuit of holiness is a must in the Christian life. Pastor Curt admonishes us from the text to pursue holiness, especially in the area of sexual purity. There is ‚Äúnothing new under the sun,‚ÄĚ and the Thessalonians were facing these challenges not unlike those in our day. Sexual perversion is rampant in our day, as it was for the Thessalonians. As God's chosen and beloved children, we must honor the Lord with our bodies and be sexually pure.
Strong Sermon! In our time, sexual sin is the most pervading behavior in our culture. It is perhaps the most temptation we face. But we can overcome it by looking to the power of the Holy Spirit to give us strength.
