1 Thessalonians 4:1 (KJV) More and More

1 Thessalonians 4:1 (KJV)
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.
Just a quick search through the New Testament reveals a number of things we Christians are exhorted to increase and abound in:
  • Hope
  • Giving 
  • Love
The Bible says we ought to abound in these things. We are not to set a comfortable pace in them. We are not to find a cruising altitude for them. We are not to add them to our lives, get established in them and then maintain a healthy practice of them. We are to abound in them.
Here the Word of God goes a step further and tells us to abound in obeying its instructions on how to walk and please God. Not only ought we to abound but abound more and more. This implies a constant climb. The Christian life is one of continued growth. There are no landings on the stairway where we can park for a while; there are only steps up or else there is a slide down.
