Together Forever

In 1 Thessalonians 4, Paul gives instructions in how to live by God’s will. To treat everyone fairly and to live holy lives. To love one another as brothers and sisters with respect for all. To live with hope; knowing that those that have passed on will someday join those still alive and meet the Lord together so they live forever together.

In this chapter there are given ideas about how we can encourage each other with a loving attitude. We can encourage each other by having faith in God’s instructions. Live clean lives by winning the unseen battle inside with self-discipline and hard work.

We can encourage through God’s Word in explaining that Jesus died and rose again; that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in Him (v. 14). There is eternal hope because Jesus is our bridge to eternity so we can encourage each other in brotherly love.

This day with You Lord, we pray that more will be told about this hope for tomorrow. May we take every opportunity to freely offer encouragement and brotherly love! In Jesus name we pray. Amen.

About Mark Shields

Mark volunteers as a member of the media ministry team at his church. A few years ago, he started an on-line Bible study guide called “This Day with God Devotional”. He uses this as a tool in his journey through the Bible. We live in a very busy world with busy schedules so this tool has helped him continue with daily Bible reading and study. Each of the studies are designed to help apply our faith in the work place, at school, or at home. Join him on this journey or check in every so often to read his thoughts.

    A very needed message for today’s attitude and environment. Too often we forget to love one another.
