Notes:

1 Thessalonians 5:1-11 Put on faith, love, and hope  three separate and very vital concepts that we need to live until the time our Lord returns.

FAITH

Hebrews 3:7-4:2 Faith is to have confidence and trust that God is real and that He means what He says. Faith always has corresponding obedience. The children of Israel in the wilderness were continually disobedient because they did not believe. The great deception we face is thinking we have faith because we mentally acknowledge that God is real and His Word is truth. Faith goes way beyond an intellectual acknowledgment; rather, it translates into action.

Hebrews 11:6-13 It is impossible to please God without faith. Faith is connected with hope. Our forefathers of faith had a strong conviction regarding their hope.

HOPE

Hebrews 6:13-20 Hope is the anchor of the soul.

Romans 8:18-25 We have a great hope which encourages us in the darkest moments of life. Jesus Christ is coming back, and we will be transformed to be with him and our Father forever.

LOVE

Romans 8:26- 39 Nothing can separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

1 John 4:7-21 If we love God, we love each other.

1 Corinthians 13:1-13 Faith, hope, and love are interwoven with each being a vital part of Christian living. God says the greatest is LOVE.
