1 Thessalonians 1:1-6 & 4:13-5:11; Matthew 12:15-21; Isaiah 42:1-4
The hope of Jesus eliminates ignorance and fear of what happens to us when we die!
When we all get to heaven…we will be with Jesus forever!
Encourage one another with this knowledge!
We shouldn’t say…I hope Jesus comes back…It should be more like…I HAVE hope because I KNOW Jesus is coming back!
How do we stay in that sober anticipation of Jesus?
- We daily put on our faith to protect our hearts
- We daily love people and love God to advance the kingdom
- We daily guard our minds with hope…we stay in the knowledge and truth that Jesus will come back…and we will go to an eternal heaven!
MAIN POINT: This Christmas…2019…our HOPE is in JESUS!
- We don’t wish for Eternity
- We have confidence in the certainty of it!
