The scripture describes what will happen to believers who have died. They will go to Heaven and be reunited with the Savior. When the Second Coming does (finally) happen, the dead will rise and bring those of us still alive on Earth into Heaven to always be with our Lord and Savior.
1. Have you prepared for the Second Coming? If so, how?
2. How would you encourage others to prepare as Paul suggested to the church in Thessalonica?
Challenge: Think about how you can encourage others to prepare for the time when Jesus returns again. Pray and allow the Holy Spirit to lead you in the direction He is calling you to serve each other is this way.
