The first candle was lit today, the candle of HOPE. We have this blessed hope that Jesus will come for us someday. We do not know the day or the hour. For some He will come sooner than for others.
I Thessalonians 4: 16-18 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. 17 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. 18 Therefore encourage one another with these words.
