Devotional – Encourage One Another

Devotional Sun Icon

Therefore encourage one another with these words. 1 Thessalonians 4:18 ESV

What words? “…the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord.” 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 ESV.

We can encourage one another (and ourselves) by remembering we, as the Lord’s people, have a glorious future! Today, there is much to be discouraged about, but faith grabs hold of the promises of God. And, what better promise could there be than “we will always be with the Lord?”

Family, health, and financial problems are very real and very discouraging. But remember, in Jesus Christ you have the promises of God to cling to and a wonderful future to anticipate: we will always be with the Lord!
