1 Thes. 4a: Abundant life, Excelling in Jesus—on Probing the Prophets with Rod
Whenever an author begins his paragraph with “finally,” you know he’s wrapping things up. Here, Paul finishes his exhortation to steadfastness by urging his “children” to walk each day with Jesus and “excell still more.”
Walking with Jesus leads to abundant living (John 10:10). In this exhortation Paul urges for two specific areas of life to become more and more “excellent”: sexual purity and true-hearted love. In this way, we impact each other as well as outsiders.
Let’s make a positive impression on our world. We follow Jesus; let them see how life-elevating that is! Join me for this interesting and life-enriching discussion.
