Does hope mean something like "I hope I don't get a speeding ticket"? Does hope mean "I hope I can get some ice cream"? Or does true hope mean something much different? In this episode of "The Tracy Marx Show" Dr. Marx discusses what true hope is and how we can apply it to our lives.

TEXT: 1 Thessalonians 5:1-6
Today, we come to the final message in our series, True Hope in Hopeless Times. Recapping what we have learned in this series, we know that the true hope of believers is Jesus Christ Himself and the event called the Rapture when He will call His church out of this world to be with Him forever. We look forward to the Rapture because it means being like Jesus, because it means being with Jesus, and because of the certainty of the coming of Jesus.
In our last message, we looked at how Christians should handle death from First Thessalonians chapter 4. By using three key words in that passage -- Sorrow, Sleep, and Spirit -- we saw that: (1) Christians do not have to be sorrowful about death because Christ conquered death and the grave; (2) For the Christian, death is really a sleep in which our bodies are laid to rest in the ground as they await the Rapture when they will be resurrected and transformed into glorious bodies; (3) When a Christian dies, his spirit immediately leaves his body and goes to be with the Lord.
Today, as we close out this series, we are going to look at the issue of the delay in Christ's coming. As we noted, the believers in Thessalonica were eager for Christ's return. In fact, scholars state that the disciples and the apostles expected Christ to return within their lifetime. So, understandably, they began to worry as they grew older and as their friends began to die, and Christ had not come back. Unlike many people today, they were not trying to cling to this world; they were eager to get out of this world.
Paul writes to the Thessalonian believers and helps them to understand some things regarding the delay in Christ's return.
