Have you ever heard someone say hoping in Jesus is wishful thinking? Maybe you’ve said it! Pastor Randy looks at the sure hope we have in Jesus’ return. As we turn to 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18, Paul assures the church that those who have died in Christ before he returns will be with him when he comes back in their resurrected bodies. The church doesn’t need to fear death or mourn in the same way as those who don’t have the same hope in Christ.

1 Thessalonians 4:13-18

13 But we do not want you to be uninformed, brothers, about those who are asleep, that you may not grieve as others do who have no hope. 14 For since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so, through Jesus, God will bring with him those who have fallen asleep. 15 For this we declare to you by a word from the Lord,[a] that we who are alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will not precede those who have fallen asleep. 16 For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord. 18 Therefore encourage one another with these words.
