"How Christ's coming affects people" In his letter to the Thessalonians, the apostle Paul wrote: "We bear incessantly in mind your faithful work and your loving labor and your endurance due to your hope in out Lord Jesus Christ before our God and Father." (1 Thessalonians 1:3) Paul attributed fruitful labor and endure to hope in Jesus Christ. That hope includes faith in Christ's coming and in the restoration for which it paves the way. Such a hope can sustain true Christians, or keep them going, in spite very difficult situations.
