  • There is hope after this life!
    1st Thessalonians 4:13-18. There is hope after this life! While some left their jobs expecting Jesus would soon come back, others started worrying about their fellow Christians who had died. Notice however, the response of the apostle to their misconception in vv.13-14. His intention is to dissuade them from excessive grieving for departed relations. Grieving for the loss of loved ones or friends is not unchristian. Only we must not grieve as people who have no hope (v13). Because we have the hope of eternal life, we know we will soon meet to part no more. Take note of what is said about those who die in the Lord: They have fallen asleep in Christ (v13, cf. 1 Corinthians 15:17-18). Death does not overpower them. It is rather a temporary repose. They shall be awakened and raised up to meet the Lord in the air(v14). They with us will be forever with the Lord (v17). The doctrine of the resurrection and the second coming of Christ is a great antidote to the fear of death and excessive sorrow for the departed. For further study look at: Psalm 116:15; Isaiah 57:1-2; 1 Corinthians 15:19,29-55; Hebrews 2:9-15; Revelation 14:13. And so: Have you lost a dear one in Christ, let these words comfort you. Prayer: Thank you Father, that because Jesus Christ lives, the terror of death is swallowed up in His victory. Amen.
