The hope of Jesus’ return

Read Thessalonians 4: 13-18, Paul explains what will happen at Christ’s return. First Jesus will descend from the sky in a way similar to His ascension, then God will resurrect the bodies of departed believers. We know from Corinthians 5:8 their spirits will have been with Jesus since the moment of physical death. Christians who are alive will rise to meet Jesus in the air and will dwell with Him forever. What a day that will be. Have you confessed your sins or accepted Him as your Lord? Pray for wisdom and direction. Tell a friend about Jesus’ return. You’ll want to see him or her in heaven on that great day.
