How does God want me to live?

As for other matters, brothers and sisters, we instructed you how to live in order to please God, as in fact you are living. Now we ask you and urge you in the Lord Jesus to do this more and more. For you know what instructions we gave you by the authority of the Lord Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 4:1-2
            Paul addressed the Thessalonians in his first letter to them and, in chapter 4, he gave them instruction about how to live.  It’s a pretty nice summary
1.      Live pure and holy, set aside for godly work. (Verse 3)
2.      Avoid sexual immorality and control your body. (Verse 3)
3.      Love one another. (Verse 9)
4.      Live a quiet life and mind your own business. (Verses 11)
5.      Work hard so you’re not financially dependent of anyone. (Verse 11)
If all Christians lived this way, it would be an incredible testimony to outsiders.
