In my opinion, Paul was telling the Thessalonian Christians that, as time passes, they should seek (with God's help) to continually display more and more the attributes that characterize Christians -- specifically, love toward one another, and, in fact, to all people (not just fellow Christians) -- and to conform their behavior ever closer to the manner of Christian living and of pleasing God that Paul had personally shown and taught them. They are to be always growing and increasing in their faith and in their love, rather than remaining static or self-satisfied.
