relationships with others. He wrote about purity and honor among friends. Today we consider how we should let Gods love drive how we relate to others. Listen for what is Gods will. 1 Thessalonians 4:3-5 (NIV) It is God's will that you should be sanctified: that you should avoid
sexual immorality; 4 that each of you should learn to control his own body in a way that is holy and honorable, 5 not in passionate lust like the heathen, who do not know God; Absolute Purity in Relationships What are Gods desires for our sexuality? How is the Christians sexual conduct to be different from
that of the non-Christian? How would you respond to someone who says it is possible to be a good Christian while also being sexually immoral? How do the media influence our attitudes about sex? Absolute Purity in Relationships

advantage of him. The Lord will punish men for all such sins, as we have already told you and warned you. 7 For God did not call us to be impure, but to live a holy life. 8 Therefore, he who rejects this instruction does not reject man but God, who gives you his Holy Spirit.

brotherly love we do not need to write to you, for you yourselves have been taught by God to love each other. 10 And in fact, you do love all the brothers throughout Macedonia. Yet we urge you, brothers, Listen for how to act towards others. to do so more and more. 11 Make it your
ambition to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business and to work with your hands, just as we told you, 12 so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependent on anybody. Focus on Your Own Actions For what does Paul commend the Thessalonian
believers? What command of God were the Thessalonians known for obeying? How did they learn about love? What does it mean to lead a quiet life? Focus on Your Own Actions What is the result of living a quiet, respected, and responsible life? What reasons does Paul give for
