Worthy Actions (1 Thess 2)

For you know how, like a father with his children, we exhorted each one of you and encouraged you and charged you to walk in a manner worthy of God, who calls you into his own kingdom and glory.

Every Christian should walk in a manner worthy of God. Don’t swallow the lie that once you’ve prayed a prayer and gotten your “ticket” to heaven God does not care how you act. Don’t trust people who tell you that, as a Christian, there are no standards for your life now… everything is simply a matter of conscience. No. Paul exhorted and encouraged the Christians he knew to walk worthy of a holy God, who is a glorious and royal king. If there is any question as to our conduct, we should turn around and strive for holiness. Be holy, even as He is holy.
