invitation to consecration

1 Thessalonians 4:7-8 (JDV)

1 Thessalonians 4:7 For God has not invited us to impurity but to live in consecration.
1 Thessalonians 4:8 Consequently, anyone who rejects this does not reject a human, but God, who gives you his Sacred Breath.

invitation to consecration

Living the consecrated life in reference to our sexuality is a possibility for every Christian. God invites us to be consecrated to him in that way. We can still refuse his invitation, but if we do, we need to know that the choice is not without consequence. Paul calls it rejecting God.

As some point in our future, we will stand before the judgment, and all our choices will be evaluated. That is not the time to discover that promiscuity or homosexuality is wrong, after all.

Lord, help us to flee impurity and live lives consecrated to your preference.
