Those Who Sleep in Jesus

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE VERSE – 1 Thessalonians 4:13-14

“But I do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen asleep, lest you sorrow as others who have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again even so God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus .” – 1 Thessalonians 4:13-14

Todays_Scripture_VerseHave you lost a relative or loved one who was a Christian? Do you still miss them and grieve for them sometimes? Take comfort, for you will see them again. Right now they are “sleeping in Jesus”. But one day soon they will be resurrected from the dead. They will come alive again when Jesus returns and Raptures the Church. The dead in Christ will be resurrected first, and then we who are still alive and remain will be caught up together with the Lord, and we will be reunited with our loved ones. “Therefore”, writes the apostle Paul, “comfort one another with these words.”
