Read Introduction to 1 Thessalonians

 

“You are witnesses, and God also, how devoutly and justly and blamelessly we behaved ourselves among you who believe…“
 
and blamelessly
 
The word “blamelessly” connotes the idea that no one can sustain a charge against us. No one can make any charges against us. We are people without blame.
 
No Thessalonian could blame the gospel team for some inconsistency in their lives. No one could censure their ministry in that city. They were without reproach in the eyes of men. They gave no cause of scandal.
“This being so, I myself always strive to have a conscience without offense toward God and men” (Acts 24:16 ).
Principle:
We should live our lives so that no one can point an accusing finger against our testimony.
Application:
It is a wonderful thing where we find believers to whom no one can point an accusing finger. We must be careful here. Blamelessness is not sinlessness. Blamelessness has to do with accusations against us.
