“Make It Your Ambition”

Blessings folk!

Paul told the Thessalonians…and us…to excel even more in love for one another.

1 Th 4:9-10

Now as to the love of the brethren,
you have no need for anyone to write to you,
for you yourselves are taught by God to love one another;

for indeed you do practice it toward all the brethren who are in all Macedonia.
But we urge you, brethren, to excel still more,

Paul continues the thought…and sentence…by giving more instruction.

1 Th 4:11-12
and to make it your ambition to lead a quiet life and attend to your own business and work with your hands, just as we commanded you,

so that you will behave properly toward outsiders and not be in any need.

Love will manifest in deed.

A quiet life…not raucous, not rowdy, not seeking disruption, etc.

Attending to our own business…not busy-bodies, not nosey

Working with our own hands…not lazy, not slothful, not presumptive

Behave properly toward outsiders…those not of the faith.

So that you will not be in need.

So many that profess to be believers live in the wrong way (especially among leadership).

Let us cease…

Have the proper ambition in the Spirit.
