“We exhorted each one of you and encouraged you and charged you to walk in a manner worthy of God, who calls you into his own kingdom and glory” (vs. 12). It is important for us to start living the life of God’s future Kingdom in our present lives. We are now in God’s family and so we should live in a way that does not bring disrespect to the family name. “When you received the word of God, which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men but as what it really is, the word of God, which is at work in you believers” (vs. 13). The way we live lives worthy of God is by living according to His Word through our daily lives. This Word of God is actually at work in us who are believers in Christ and members of God’s family. Therefore, let the Word of God transform you into a person worthy of God’s name and citizenship in His Kingdom.
