“Excel Still More”

Blessings folk!

Paul is winding down the letter to the Thessalonians.

Give close attention…

1 Th 4:1-2

Finally then, brethren, we request and exhort you in the Lord Jesus,
that as you received from us instruction as to how you ought to walk and please God
(just as you actually do walk), that you excel still more.

For you know what commandments we gave you by the authority of the Lord Jesus.

Notice what Paul was doing.

He made a request of them.

He exhorted them.

Related to the instruction that he had given them.

To walk as you should walk before God.
To please God.

They actually were walking that way.
Paul wanted them to excel even more!

Not condemnation.

Exhortation to excel more in the ways of the Lord…in love.

May we do likewise…
