Title: “Hope in Grief”

Text:  1 Thessalonians 4:13-18

1.       In Ephesians 4:30 we are warned to not grieve the Holy Spirit.  As you study this passage what actions grieve the Holy Spirit?  Why? 

2.       What did Peter say in Acts 2:32 about the resurrection of Jesus?  Why is the resurrection so vital to our faith?  See 1 Corinthians 15:12-23.

3.       What does “those who sleep in Jesus” mean in 1 Thessalonians 4:14?  How does this compare to 2 Corinthians 5:4-9?

4.       What comfort do you get from Hebrews 2:10-15 about your future life after death?

5.       The word snatched in 1 Thessalonians 4:17 appears in Acts 8:39, John 10:28-29 and Jude 23.  What do you learn about the “rapture” from these passages?

6.       Why is a blessing to die in the Lord?  Revelation 14:13.
