1 Thessalonians 4:13-5:11 Be enCOURAGEd by the greatest rescue plan ever. Be enCOURAGEd for those who have died knowing Jesus. Be enCOURAGEd that your belief in Jesus as Savior gives you hope for his return. Be enCOURAGEd that those who are children of light won’t be caught unprepared. Be enCOURAGEd that the invitation to be a child of the light is still available. Have COURAGE and take action in your reaction to the Gospel!
