DO’S AND DON’TS!

1 Thessalonians 5:17-22​ –  Devotional

1 Thessalonians 5:17-22

“Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. Quench not the Spirit. Despise not prophesy. Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. Abstain from all appearance of evil.”

Paul challenged the church at Thessalonica, as well as for all of us, to live a life that separates us from the rest of the world. We are not to blend in and become a part of, but rather we are to stand up and stand out for Christ!

Paul lists three things we are not to do: 1. Quench not the Spirit. 2. Despise not prophesy. 3. Abstain from all appearance of evil. How well are we doing in this regard? Let’s take time to evaluate our conduct in light of this admonition.

There are five positive qualities that Paul encourages us to pursue: 1. Rejoice evermore. 2. Pray without ceasing. 3. In everything give thanks. 4. Prove all things. 5. Hold fast that which is good.

I encourage each of us to spend time honestly evaluating our life to determine these; do’s and don’ts. It will become a blessing to ourselves as well as to those around us.

Blessings dear hearts walk with God today and become a blessing!
