1 Thessalonians 5:24: "Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and may your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ." Paul's prayer to the Thessalonians is that they may be sanctified in all aspects of their life, spirit, soul, and body. Every part of a Christian's life should bear evidence that he or she is set apart as holy to God. Christians are already saints in the sense that they have been set apart to God. Paul exhorts the Thessalonians to express holiness in this life so that the Lord would approve of their conduct upon His return. 'Blameless' does not mean sinless, but free from causes of reproach and regret.
