Possessing Oneís Vessel

1 Thes 4:4


1 Thes 4:1 ∂ Furthermore then we beseech you, brethren, and exhort you by the Lord Jesus, that as ye have received of us how ye ought to walk and to please God, so ye would abound more and more.

2 For ye know what commandments we gave you by the Lord Jesus.

3 For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication:

4 That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honour;

5 Not in the lust of concupiscence, even as the Gentiles which know not God:

6 That no man go beyond and defraud his brother in any matter: because that the Lord is the avenger of all such, as we also have forewarned you and testified.


1.         Sanctification


1.              It is more than a reformation of character, brought about by the Bible:

a. It is the work of the Holy Spirit bringing the nature more and more under the influences of the new creature implanted at regeneration.

b.   Sanctification is the carrying on to perfection the work begun in regeneration, and it extends to the whole man.

i.      Romans 6:13Neither yield ye your members [as] instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members [as] instruments of righteousness unto God.

2.              It is the special office of the Holy Spirit in the plan of blackemption to carry on this work.

a.    1 Corinthians 6:11And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.

3.              Faith helps in our sanctification, as it

a.    Brings us to Christ (Ga 2:20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.)and

b.   Brings the believer to the truth.(2 Timothy 3:16All scripture [is] given by inspiration of God, and [is] profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:)

2.         Honour

Dictionary: A code of conduct, which values integrity, dignity, and pride.


3.         The Lust of Concupiscence


5 Not in the lust of concupiscence, even as the Gentiles which know not God:



Lust, the origin of sin, has its place in the heart because it is the natural centre of all of our thought activity.



Denotes evil desire


So you see, the lusting heart often turns to desire evil.

But, we are not to allow our lives to be spent lusting after evil things.

We should know how to possess our vessels in sanctification and honour.


Possessing Oneís Vessel

I.                      It means that you Own your Body Ė it doesnít own you

A.              A lost person allows his body to run his spirit.

1.           1 Corinthians 6:13Meats for the belly, and the belly for meats: but God shall destroy both it and them. Now the body [is] not for fornication, but for the Lord; and the Lord for the body.

B.               But, you will never be saved by letting the body be your religion.

1.           Romans 6:11Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord

2.           Romans 16:18For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple

3.           You Own your Body

C.              In Salvation the Spirit comes ALIVE.

1.           Ezekiel 37:14And (I) shall put my spirit in you, and ye shall live

2.           Galatians 6:8For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.

3.           You Own your Body Ė it doesnít own you

D.              Salvation brings freedom and liberty from the bondage of sin.

1.           Galatians 5:1 ∂ Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.

2.           You Own your Body Ė it doesnít own you


II.                   It means that there is a Right Way to Possess your Body

A.              There is an Instruction manual, the Bible, Godís Holy Word

B.               A Spiritual Book for a Spiritual man

1.           1 Corinthians 2:13Which things also we speak, not in the words which manís wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.

2.           1 Corinthians 2:14But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know [them], because they are spiritually discerned.

C.              There is a new way to live and walk

1.           Galatians 5:25If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

2.           Galatians 2:20I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

3.           There is a Right Way to Possess your Body


And finally, it means:

III.                There is going to be an Accounting of how you handle your body

A.              A believer is accountable

1.           1 Peter 4:2That he no longer should live the rest of [his] time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God.

2.           1 Peter 4:6For for this cause was the gospel preached also to them that are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit.

3.           Everything done in the flesh is being recorded.


B.               Jesus will judge our works in the flesh.

1 Corinthians 3:11 ∂ For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.

12Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble;

13Every manís work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every manís work of what sort it is.

14If any manís work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward.

15    If any manís work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.


C.              Donít waste your life as a believer living for things that will perish.

1.           1 Thes 4:4 That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honour;

D.              Live your life unashamedly for Jesus.

1.           He alone offers rewards for how we do.

2.           The rewards for coming up with ďthe most toysĒ pass as the flower of the field.

3.           Here today, gone tomorrow.
