1 Thessalonians Chapter 4 : 1-10 - World English Bible [WEB]

  • World English Bible [WEB]
  • 1 Finally then, brothers, we beg and exhort you in the Lord Jesus, that as you received from us how you ought to walk and to please God, that you abound more and more.
  • 2 For you know what instructions we gave you through the Lord Jesus.
  • 3 For this is the will of God: your sanctification, that you abstain from sexual immorality,
  • 4 that each one of you know how to possess himself of his own vessel in sanctification and honor,
  • 5 not in the passion of lust, even as the Gentiles who don't know God;
  • 6 that no one should take advantage of and wrong a brother or sister in this matter; because the Lord is an avenger in all these things, as also we forewarned you and testified.
  • 7 For God called us not for uncleanness, but in sanctification.
  • 8 Therefore he who rejects this doesn't reject man, but God, who has also given his Holy Spirit to you.
  • 9 But concerning brotherly love, you have no need that one write to you. For you yourselves are taught by God to love one another,
  • 10 for indeed you do it toward all the brothers who are in all Macedonia. But we exhort you, brothers, that you abound more and more;

  • 1 Further, friends, we beg and urge you in the name of our Lord Jesus to carry out more fully than ever – as indeed you are already doing – all that you have heard from us as to what your daily life must be, if it is to please God.
  • 2 For you have not forgotten the directions that we gave you on the authority of our Lord Jesus.
  • 3 For this is God’s purpose – that you should be pure; abstaining from all immorality;
  • 4 each of you learning to gain control over your own body, in a way that is holy and honorable,
  • 5 and not for the mere gratification of your passions, like the Gentiles who know nothing of God;
  • 6 none of you overreaching or taking advantage of their fellow follower of the Lord in such matters. The Lord takes vengeance on all who do such things, as we have already warned you and solemnly declared.
  • 7 For God’s call to us does not permit of an impure life, but demands purity.
  • 8 Therefore the person who disregards this warning disregards, not people, but God who gives you his Holy Spirit.
  • 9 As to love for each other there is no need to write to you; for you have yourselves been taught by God to love one another;
  • 10 and indeed you do act in this spirit towards all his people throughout Macedonia. Yet, friends, we beg you to do even more.

What is the Sinner's Prayer for Salvation?

The sinners prayer is a common Christian term for a prayer that is said when someone wants to repent of their sin, ask God for forgiveness, and verbally state their belief in the life, death, and saving resurrection of Jesus Christ.

"For, if with your lips you acknowledge the truth of the message that JESUS IS LORD, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with their hearts people believe and so attain to righteousness, while with their lips they make their Profession of faith and so find salvation." Romans 10:9-10

Christ's death on the cross paid in full the debt of our sin. Action must be taken to take hold of the gift.

Dear God, I know that I am a sinner and there is nothing that I can do to save myself. I confess my complete helplessness to forgive my own sin or to work my way to heaven through any good works. At this moment I trust Christ alone and receive by faith all Grace purchased by Jesus as the One who bore my sin when He died on the cross. I believe that He did all that will ever be necessary for me to stand in your holy presence. I thank you that Christ was raised from the dead as a guarantee of my own resurrection. As best as I can, I now transfer my trust to Him and by my faith take hold of His grace and love for me. I am grateful that He has promised to receive me despite my many sins and failures. Thank you for your word that will guide me as to how I should live my remaining days. Please grant me the wisdom to discern correctly and motivation to grow my faith, obedience, understanding, appreciation, and love for you. Thank you for your Grace and mercy that I do not deserve. Thank you that my salvation is not based on my level of performance in my short life but in my receiving what your victory on the cross did pay for. Thank you that I can receive by my faith alone, your glorious gift of salvation. Thank you for hearing this prayer and for saving me. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
