This week we will explore the most popular passage in Paul's letters to the Thessalonians. Under the leadership of the Holy Spirit, Paul writes about the hope we have in the return of the Lord Jesus Christ. It is in this passage we learn more about our part in that return. The Word of God assures us the Jesus is coming to “catch us away.” Additionally we are given the promise of a new body, a resurrected body for those who sleep in Christ. The purpose of the teaching is that we would be encouraged and that we would not grieve as others do. These are “Words of Hope.”

Their works and actions were different than the people around them because they lived for the Kingdom and Glory of God and their lives were approved by God. We will explore what that means and how we too might follow that example.
