1 Thessalonians 4:13

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.
1 Thessalonians 4:13

The Thessalonian church was a church who loved the Lord. They were on fire. However, there was a rumor going around the rapture had already happened and that those who have died already missed it. But notice Paul says, "lest you sorrow as others who have no hope." We have this hope for anyone who passes away that believes in the Lord. If we continue reading, we know that we will see them again.

I recently had a loved one pass away. Though it was tough, there was this peace (Philippians 4:7) that came over me. I kept remembering this verse and the hope that I have in the Lord that I will see them again. That's what Paul was trying to get through to this church. Don't worry about those who sleep in Jesus. You don't have to grieve like those who have no hope. Our hope is that we will someday be with the Lord and with those who are in Him. How refreshing these words are to me and the importance for me to go out and share with everyone I know and love.
