Today is Monday, July 16, 2018. Hi, my name is Adam Burton and you are listening to the Daily Devo; a short devotional designed to help you apply God’s Word to your life. The content comes from the Gospel Project.
Take a few moments and read: 1 Thessalonians 4:13–5:11
Christian hope gives us a lens of faith through which we can better view and understand the world around us—a world plagued by sin, decay, death, and pain. With this lens, we look forward and beyond what we experience today, to a world unbelievers cannot see—a world transformed by Christ upon His return, where He reigns in glory and He has made everything new. Seeing this in our future is what provides us with the encouragement we need to be steadfast and unmovable. Christ is returning for us, and this is the hope we cling to as we navigate life’s trials and adversities.
Think about this: How would you explain the power of the Christian hope to a young believer? How does the Christian hope in Jesus’ return challenge the way you view your current circumstances?
