In reading 1 Thessalonians 4: 6-8 we find As Christians We are not to go beyond and be covetous and take advantage of our brothers and sisters because God is the avenger. Paul through God goes On to say, As we were told before and do testify. God has not called us to a state of moral corruption but unto sanctification. So he that REJECTS sanctification rejects not man but rejects God who ALSO gave us His Holy Spirit.

God will avenge those whom we take advantage of. His vengeance will be against we who reject sanctification through His Spirit. Through which His Word is in the heart and mouth, His Laws are in the heart and mind. Because in that rejection we reject God. For God is Spirit and it is He that works in us both to will and do His good pleasure.

And that no man transgress and defraud his brother in the matter because the Lord is the avenger in all these things, just as we also told you before and solemnly warned you. For God has not called us for the purpose of impurity, but in sanctification. So, he who rejects this is not rejecting man but the God who gives His Holy Spirit to you.

If one has from God the same as Jesus had from God he is not going to take advantage of anyone, he is going to have the same mind of God Jesus had where it isn't an effort to love thy neighbor, or effort to love God, but we become like Him. And when one does see Him as He is ye shall be like Him just as Jesus when he saw Him as He is became like Him in Matt 3:16, 120 did in an upper room. It is no longer effort according to law but is who we become and those laws are fulfilled that is not an effort but the reality of having the mind of Love which God is Love. His Spirit in man is Love. Few who actually find His way to be like Him for their laws established will not allow them to be like Him as Jesus was like Him.
