For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. Therefore encourage one another with these words. (1 Thessalonians 4:16-18) Read the whole chapter here.

As you think about the hope you have in Christ returning, notice that last verse. "Therefore encourage one another with these words." 

As a Believer, you should challenge yourself to be an encouragement to those around you, both Christians and unbelievers. If you really believe that Jesus is coming again, and you will be with him forever when you die, how should that change the way you live? How should that change the way you talk to your spouse? Or your coworkers? 

Remember those words today. "Therefore encourage one another..."
