1 Thessalonians 5:23-24

God's Word for His unfinished people

Paul's prayer for something that has not yet happened

  • Sanctification is what God does in our lives to make sure we turn out right.

"May God Himself, the God of peace...

  • Only God can "make you better."

Sanctify you through and through,

  • "God intends the entire renovation of the man."  (John Calvin)

Your whole spirit, soul, and body...

  • Good news! We're going to be changed!

Blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

  • Only God can give what we need to be victorious.

The One who calls you is faithful and He will do it."

  • Our entire hope rests upon the faithfulness of God.
