The daily fountain (Anglican Communion) Friday 26 Nov.2021


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.

7.For God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness.

8.He therefore that despiseth, despiseth not man, but God, who hath also given unto us his holy Spirit.

9.But as touching brotherly love ye need not that I write unto you: for ye yourselves are taught of God to love one another.

10.And indeed ye do it toward all the brethren which are in all Macedonia: but we beseech you, brethren, that ye increase more and more;

11.And that ye study to be quiet, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you;

12.That ye may walk honestly toward them that are without, and that ye may have lack of nothing.

From today’s reading, Paul gives instruction and practical Christian living on how we ought to walk and to please God. He point out clearly, things we must do if our lives must please God;

1. Abstain from sexual immorality (vv.3-5)

2. Walk in holiness (v.7)

3.walk in harmony (vv.9-10)

4.walk in honesty (vv.11-12)

In a world where many people label and live to place themselves, families, friends or their bosses, pleasing God should be our major motive and life.

Just like our Lord Jesus Christ said, “I do always those things that please him.”
Likewise, our greatest satisfaction should be to have the same testimony.


Heavenly father, help me to always please you daily as I live, in Jesus ‘Name Amen.
