Rejoicing in Hope

1 Thessalonians 5:8
   But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.

1 Thessalonians 4:16-17
   For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

Hebrews 6:19
Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast...

   Jesus Christ is coming back. At his return believers will receive new spiritual bodies like his resurrected body, be gathered together, and meet him in the air. We have this hope as an anchor to our soul and a helmet to protect our head. The trumpet could sound at any time. It could be today!
