Sermon Notes: Walking Worthy in Hope (1 Thess 4: 13-18)
Hope-filled grieving, based on Jesus’ work and word, brings us encouragement

Hope-filled grieving... (13)
- The problem: Have the dead missed out on eternal life?
- Paul doesn’t want us to ‘not grieve’ - death brings grieving
- We don’t ‘grieve as others do who have no hope’ - hope-filled grieving

... Based on Jesus’ work and word... (14-17)
- Jesus’ work: Jesus died and rose again - God will bring those who died
- Jesus’ word: Promise of his coming - dead don’t miss out, they rise first
- Joyful reunion - caught up in the clouds together with them and the Lord
- Promise: we will be with the Lord forever

... Brings us encouragement (18)
- Application: encourage one another with these words
- Remember what Jesus has done and said
- Remind one another when times are tough
- Reflect on our own future
