1 Thessalonians 4:1-2
The Thessalonians had shown a hearty spiritual resilience and exemplary model of obedience in their young Christian experience. Yet, Paul addresses these spiritually vigorous believers with a powerful charge: excel still more. The command is not exclusive to the Thessalonians however as it goes out to every Christian and represents an ethical calling of the highest common denominator. This message explores the gospel context of this call as well as its meaning and authority.
