Are you ready? Are you sanctified?

1 Thessalonians 5:23And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

God Is not wanting you to only sanctify your spirit but also your soul and your body. 

Your soul is your mind, your will, and your emotions. Have you decided to sanctify or set apart even your soul to the Lord. Choose to use your mind to think upon things that are godly and righteous and pure. Use your will to decide to follow in his directed path and precise footsteps. Do not allow your emotions to control you, but rather allow the Holy Spirit to keep your emotions in check. don’t ask yourself how you feel but rather tell yourself how you will feel about each situation you encounter today. 

Sanctify your body unto the Lord. Use your eyes, ears, hands, feet, and mouth etc. as vessels to honor the Lord with the things you do. Refrain from using your body for evil and the appearance of evil. Guard yourself from fulfilling the lustful desires of your flesh. 

Why should you do these things? Why is it important to be entirely satisfied unto the Lord? Simply because he set himself apart for the specific reason of paying for your sins as he died on the cross of Calvary. Simply because the love of God is in you and compels you to do that which is pleasing in his site. Simply because the world around you needs to witness the difference between righteousness and unrighteousness. Simply because he is coming again and he is coming very soon. Are you ready?
