1 Thessalonians 4:4-5, 7-8 (NIV)
That each of you should learn to control your own body in a way that is holy and honorable. Not in passionate lust like the pagans, who do not know God. For God did not call us to be impure, but to live a holy life…Therefore, anyone who rejects this instruction does not reject a human being but God, the very God who gives you His Holy Spirit.
If Jesus the Christ were to live your life, do your chores, ply your routes, work at your business, and live in your house for one whole day; you can be sure he’d live all twenty-four hours in complete harmony with the Father, without one microsecond of sin in his thinking, speaking, or doing.
If your neighbor were to be provocative, your co-workers obnoxious, or the policeman were to harass Him, or the cable network were to offer a variety of amoral programs, or the electric power was cut; you can be sure that the Lord will not sin once.
Such was his life, whether in prayer or out of it, in meditation or out of it. He would surely eat and bathe, read your Bible and probably dance in worship, go for a walk in the rain, talk to a total stranger, help a little child across the road, heal a leper, eat at a restaurant, have siesta, and watch a little TV.
But despite being tempted at all points, there would be not one thing in your lived-out day in disharmony with Heaven.
Such was his life. Such is His life in you.
Did Jesus sin in His flesh but remain holy in His spirit? Certainly not!
He had one holy life pleasing to God in body and spirit. That is the same Life you have in you.
Prayer: Pray with Galatians 2:20: I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
