05/18 1 Thessalonians 4:15-18
I can tell you this directly from the Lord: We who are still living when the Lord returns will not rise to meet him ahead of those who are in their graves. 16 For the Lord himself will come down from heaven with a commanding shout, with the call of the archangel, and with the trumpet call of God. First, all the Christians who have died will rise from their graves. 17 Then, together with them, we who are still alive and remain on the earth will be caught up in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air and remain with him forever. 18 So comfort and encourage each other with these words.
Listen to those around you. Help them. Guide them in the way of Jesus. Care for them. Love them. Be the hands and feet of Jesus to them. Jesus is Lord.
