Jesus promises that he is going to return.  In this passage, Paul describes that return and encourages us to live in light of that certain coming reality.  As we do, we realize that Jesus’ coming return changes everything.  Our lives, hearts, emotions, and choices are all shaped by the reality that Jesus is coming back for this one simple reason: whatever the circumstance, we have hope.
