Where the world comes to study the Bible

The Believer’s Hope is…

1. An encouraging hope. John 14:3 Spoken to discouraged disciples. Discouraged by Christ’s departure, encouraged by His return.

2. A comforting hope. 1 Thess. 4:13-18

3. A motivating hope. 1 Cor. 15:50-58 Knowing that resurrection body will be obtained through death or translation, tat labor isn’t fruitless, be steadfast in commitment to Christ and diligent in service for Christ. (v. 58)

4. A purifying hope. 1 John 3:2-3

The effect it should have on us.

3. Be comforted 1 Thess. 4:13-18

4. Be cheered Phil. 3:21 Transformation of our bodies, we’ll be changed.
