Possess yourself

In First Thessalonians 4:3, Paul said that God’s will for us is sanctification, and that includes abstaining from sexual immorality according to verse 3, and it includes

“that each of you should know how to possess his own vessel in sanctification and honor, not in passion of lust, like the Gentiles who do not know God” (1 Thessalonians 4:4-5).

Rather than letting sin possess you—in particular the passion of lust—possess yourself, exercise self-control.

Do not live like the people who do not know God, because you do know Him and let it show by how you live!
