Words From Keith and Debbie Crews

For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you should abstain from sexual immorality; that each of you should know how to possess his own vessel in sanctification and honor, not in passion of lust, like the Gentiles who do not know God (1 Thess 4:3-5).
Each of us should possess our vessel (body) in sanctification an honor.  Our clothing, speech, and behavior should reflect Christ (Gal 2:20).  We are not animals.  We are called to be holy (1 Pet 1:15).  We are expected to discipline our body and bring it into subjection (1 Cor 9:27).  We are to make no provision for the flesh to fulfill its lusts (Rom 13:14).  We are to control our passions and desires (Gal 5:24).  We are to control our tongue (Eph 4:29).  We are to bring every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ (2 Cor 10:5).  We can do this if we are spiritually minded (Rom 8:5-6).
Keith
