OUR FUTURE AND OUR HOPE
Jesus Christ is coming to earth again (1 Thess. 1:10). By the power of God, he will raise the dead, bestow the gift of immortality upon all believers (1 Cor. 15:51-57), and establish the Kingdom of God forever (2 Pet. 1:11).
As his people, we are heirs with the Messiah. God has determined that he will inherit the whole earth (Psalm 2:7, 8) and God also determined that those who are the people of Jesus will be joint heirs with him (Matt. 5:5; Rom. 8:17).
While we wait for the coming of the Lord, we should live with humility, loving our fellows, and walking in truth and light as God shines it to us. The Apostle John said:
But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light,
we have fellowship one with another, and the blood
of Jesus, his Son, cleanses us from all sin (1 John 1:7).
