1 Thessalonians 4

Carve the very nature, the very heart of Jesus into me, Lord.

Father, continue to help me to follow what You command in this passage.

Keep my mind pure and my actions holy. Help me to say “no” to the flesh and to run shouting “yes!” toward the Spirit.

You’ve called me to a pure and holy life. Help me to live like that — It’s only by Your Spirit and power in me that I can do so, as You transform me to be like Jesus.  Amen.
