The Thessalonians are commended for their faith, especially in the midst of opposition and tribulation. Paul is genuinely concerned about their spiritual growth and maturing, wanting them to “excel still more” in their faith and in their love for one another. Paul exhorts the Thessalonian believers to remain faithful, and continue to work diligently. These are the very things that we also should take to heart in the midst of the world we live in today.
Sermon Description: As you have received instruction on how to walk and please God . . . excel still More! EXCEL in being pleasing to God. Living to please God is our calling! It is not to be taken lightly. Sanctification must be pursued. It has to be pursued decisively. it has to be rooted in love.
