Wherefore COMFORT yourselves together, and EDIFY one another, even as also ye do. And we beseech you, brethren, to KNOW THEM which labour among you, and are over you in the Lord, and admonish you; And to ESTEEM THEM very highly IN LOVE for their work's sake. AND BE AT PEACE AMONG YOURSELVES. Now we exhort you, brethren, warn them that are unruly, comfort the feebleminded, support the weak, be patient toward ALL men. See that none render evil for evil unto ANY man; but ever follow that which is good, BOTH AMONG YOURSELVES, AND TO ALL MEN. Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In EVERY THING give thanks: for THIS IS THE WILL OF GOD in Christ Jesus CONCERNING YOU. Quench not the Spirit. Despise not prophesyings. Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. Abstain from all appearance of evil. And 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. Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it. 1 Thessalonians 5:11-24. This is the "Laundry List" of things a Christian should do every day he calls himself a Christian. No longer can a man say, "I'm just seeking the Lord and the direction He wants me to go in". You have seeked, (new word), and you have found, right here, now, GO AND DO. As you learn and do these things, you will be growing in CHRISTLIKENESS, and that will take you the rest of your Life. Oh yes, while you're doing all these things, the Lord WILL step in and direct your steps into all that He has for you to do. As you learn to do and follow all the "mundane" and little things listed above, you will find the Lord stepping in at just the right moments to show you the other things He specifically wants YOU to do in Obedience to Him. My Point? SEEK CHRIST FIRST, (as above), and He'll supply ALL the other things you'll need to know and do to Serve Him, His People, and everyone else on planet Earth. Seek Christ, and ALWAYS, Be Blessed.
