Every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honor.
There are many practical verses in Thessalonians that are a challenge to the way we conduct ourselves. Yesterday we considered the need for abstinence from fornication. It’s all very well for me to say, “Don’t do it.” But how can you guard against it? Paul says, “Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.” That’s one way that you can exercise self-control - by walking in the Spirit. Perhaps you have some suggestions as to practices to help avoid fornication. Write them down and send them to me (Paul Pascoe). We’ll publish a list of practical helps to avoid this most damaging sin.
