For since we believe that Jesus died and was raised to life again, we also believe that when Jesus returns, God will bring back with him the believers who have died.1 Thessalonians 4:14
Raised to Life
The greatest hope we have as Christians is that when the physical life is over, our spiritual life will not be over. When we close our eyes in this life, we will awaken in the next. Heaven and eternal life with Jesus is our promise for believing and following Him. The other part of that promos is that anyone we know and love that believes and follows Him will also rise in Him.
How incredible to think that God is preparing a place for us to spend eternity with Him! This should give us great hope. It makes living this life completely different. It gives hope in this life and should give you a new purpose. Live as though this isn’t your home. You are simply walking through this life to enter the next. However, it makes living this life so important. God wants you to bring as many people with you as you can! You need to share the good news so others will share eternity with you!
A Prayer to Remember
Thank you for preparing a place for me to live with you forever. You are so good and give me hope every day knowing that there is more to this life. Amen
