He knows how to control his own body. In the midst of a discussion regarding sexual sins, Paul tells the Thessalonians that the will of God is “That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honour” (4:4). A godly person is not driven by impulse or desire but is governed by the Word of God and yields himself to the direction of the indwelling Spirit. He understands what it is to be set apart for God and to live in a fashion that honors his Savior and Lord. God puts a premium on holy knowledge.
