“Furthermore then we beseech you, brethren, and exhort you by the Lord Jesus, that as ye have received of us how ye ought to walk and to please God, so ye would abound more and more.”

4:1 More and more - It is not enough to have faith, even so as to please God, unless we abound more and more therein.
1Th 4:1 Exhortation to a Godly Life SUMMARY OF I THESSALONIANS 4: Continence Commanded. Brotherly Love Required. Each Should Quietly Follow His Own Business. Not to Sorrow Without Hope for the Dead. They, As Well As the Living Saints, Shall Meet the Lord at His. Coming. Furthermore then we beseech you, brethren, and exhort [you]. In all Paul's letters to Gentile churches there is a closing exhortation to purity of life and against such sins as Gentiles especially needed to guard against. These exhortations to the Thessalonians begin with the fourth chapter. How ye ought to walk and to please God. He reminds them that he had instructed them how to live to please God.
