They had a problem. One of the things people begin to struggle with when they have waited for a while is the nagging feeling they missed the event. The Thessalonians thought perhaps they had missed the Rapture. They thought Jesus had already come and left them behind, and now they were facing the Judgment Day of the Lord. Paul wrote, “Wrong, friends! You are confusing these events! See, there are some things that have to happen before that day comes, and they haven’t happened. So, don’t worry!
He had urged them during his visit to live to please God. In this letter, that was still his primary objective (1 Thess. 4;1). In the language of this section, it is clear that we please God when we agree with His plans for us and pursue sanctiﬁcation and holiness with His help (vv. 3, 7). What we must settle in our hearts and minds is God’s passionate desire for our good. He does not ask from us anything that isn’t for our beneﬁt. We please God most when we desire what He desires, when we ask for His will even though our will may be different—as Jesus prayed in the Garden of Gethsemane (Mark 14:36).
These directions parallel the constraints of the previous paragraph. Holiness is expressed through loving one another (v. 9). To this central objective, Paul added that they should seek: “to do this [love] more and more” (v. 10), “to aspire to live quietly” (v. 11), “to mind [their] own affairs” (v. 11) and “to work with [their] hands” (v. 11). It turns out that a quiet, thoughtful kind of life pleases the Lord God— not constantly badgering those around us, not constantly borrowing from other people but being content with what God gives us.
