“For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication: That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honour; Not in the lust of concupiscence, even as the Gentiles which know not God: 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. For God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness” 1 Thessalonians 4:3-7
Our calling as believers is unto holiness according to our opening scripture. We are called unto perfection because God is perfect and whatever He finds expression in assumes that same status. There are different Categories of Christians. Some are saved and not sanctified while others are saved and sanctified. The Latter ones are the excellent Christians and that’s where you should belong naturally as born again Christians.
