Hope For The Grieving :: 1 THESSALONIANS

Presented at Curwensville Alliance on 06/23/24 by Pastor Steve Shields.

What happens to believers when they die?

They follow the pattern set by Jesus. They are given special priority during the rapture, Their bodies are resurrected. They will be reunited with loved ones. They will be in the presence of Jesus. The future brings us present comfort.

The destiny of the believing is the hope we long for in Christ. In Christ there is an abundance of hope. Christians grieve, but we grieve with hope.

“Hope does not disappoint.”

What kind of statement is that? It’s ridiculous, unless the hope is in something solid. And when the hope is in something solid — that kind of hope is powerful.

If you are having trouble finding hope, you’re not alone. Sometimes, it’s hard to hope for our world, our  society, our families. But without hope, we will be disappointed. We’ll be despairing.

It’s our hope that you’ll find hope — and act upon it.

This podcast speaks about how to implement one of the three greatest things ever: Hope.

Finding Hope in the Sovereign King Jesus :: Palm Sunday

Presented at Curwensville Alliance on 3/25/2018 by Pastor Steve Shields

Often the words we need most to hear are these: “It’s going to be all right.” And when you draw close to God, reading his word, you begin to realize that is what he is often trying to say to his people.

It’s going to be all right.

Those words only have value if they are true.

And when they come from God, they are true.

This podcast is to help you when you are wondering, is it really going to be all right?

And, while other generations probably needed to hear that more than ours, we all need to hear that it’s going to be all right.
