Live to Please God

4Finally, dear brothers and sisters, we urge you in the name of the Lord Jesus to live in a way that pleases God, as we have taught you. You live this way already, and we encourage you to do so even more.G3063G3767G2065G5209G80G2532G3870G1722G2962G2424G2531G3880G3844G2257G4459G5209G1163G4043G2532G700G2316G2443G4052G3123 2For you remember what we taught you by the authority of the Lord Jesus.G1063G1492G5101G3852G1325G5213G1223G2962G2424 3God's will is for you to be holy, so stay away from all sexual sin.G1063G5124G2076G2307G2316G5216G38G5209G567G575G4202 4Then each of you will control his own body and live in holiness and honor -G1538G5216G1492G2932G1438G4632G1722G38G2532G5092 5not in lustful passion like the pagans who do not know God and his ways.G3361G1722G3806G1939G2532G2509G1484G3588G1492G3361G2316 6Never harm or cheat a Christian brother in this matter by violating his wife, for the Lord avenges all such sins, as we have solemnly warned you before.G3361G5233G2532G4122G846G80G1722G4229G1360G2962G1558G4012G3956G5130G2531G4277G2532G4277G5213G2532G1263 7God has called us to live holy lives, not impure lives.G1063G2316G2564G3756G2564G2248G1909G167G235G1722G38 8Therefore, anyone who refuses to live by these rules is not disobeying human teaching but is rejecting God, who gives his Holy Spirit to you.G5105G114G114G3756G444G235G2316G1325G2532G1325G1519G2248G846G40G4151 9But we don't need to write to you about the importance of loving each other, for God himself has taught you to love one another.G1161G4012G5360G2192G5532G3756G1125G5213G1063G5210G846G2075G2312G1519G25G240 10Indeed, you already show your love for all the believers throughout Macedonia. Even so, dear brothers and sisters, we urge you to love them even more.G2532G1063G4160G846G1519G3956G80G3588G1722G3650G3109G1161G3870G5209G80G4052G3123 11Make it your goal to live a quiet life, minding your own business and working with your hands, just as we instructed you before.G2532G5389G2270G2532G4238G2398G2532G2038G5216G2398G5495G2531G3853G5213 12Then people who are not Christians will respect the way you live, and you will not need to depend on others.G2443G4043G2156G4314G1854G2532G2192G5532G3367

The Hope of the Resurrection

13And now, dear brothers and sisters, we want you to know what will happen to the believers who have died so you will not grieve like people who have no hope.G1161G2309G3756G2309G5209G50G80G4012G2837G3363G3076G3363G2532G2531G3062G3588G2192G3361G1680 14For since we believe that Jesus died and was raised to life again, we also believe that when Jesus returns, God will bring back with him the believers who have died.G1063G1487G4100G3754G2424G599G2532G450G3779G2532G2837G1223G2424G71G2316G71G4862G846 15We tell you this directly from the Lord: We who are still living when the Lord returns will not meet him ahead of those who have died.G1063G5124G3004G5213G1722G3056G2962G3754G2249G3588G2198G4035G1519G3952G2962G5348G3364G5348G3588G2837 16For the Lord himself will come down from heaven with a commanding shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet call of God. First, the Christians who have died will rise from their graves.G3754G2962G846G2597G575G3772G1722G2752G1722G5456G743G2532G1722G4536G2316G2532G3498G1722G5547G450G4412 17Then, together with them, we who are still alive and remain on the earth will be caught up in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. Then we will be with the Lord forever.G1899G2249G3588G2198G4035G726G260G4862G846G1722G3507G1519G529G2962G1519G109G2532G3779G2071G3842G2071G4862G2962 18So encourage each other with these words.G5620G3870G240G1722G5125G3056
