Chaotic. Angry. Helpless. How often do we encounter these emotions when we look at the state of the world around us? It's tempting to despair. What kind of future can we look forward to when the world is so full of turmoil and division? Can the next world be any better?
Instead of turning to the world's answers to these questions, Sue Edwards invites us to look to Scripture. Though brief, Paul's letters to the Thessalonians are packed with nuggets of information to help us grasp what life after death will look like for followers of Christ. And it isn't sitting on clouds playing harps. Rather, it's dazzling, action-packed, relational, and free from pain and darkness. By focusing on the truths these short letters reveal, we are able to fill our spirits with real anticipation and courage. We can forge ahead, empowered by God's grace to bless and empower others, knowing the glorious heaven that awaits.
