“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
(John 16:33 (NIV))
What has happened to the human race?
With what is happening all around the world and with what just happened in this country, what is going on that is driving people to act in such a manner? Regardless of what you think of the lifestyle of the victims, they were children of God and He loves them just as much as He loves those of His children who profess a faith in Jesus. In fact, it is for these people, and all sinners in general, that Jesus came into the world.
for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
(Romans 3:23 (NIV))
He came to offer a way out of sin. He came to offer mercy and grace.
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
(John 3:16 (NIV))
You never know when the world will take your life. You never know if the breath that you take will be your last. You never know when the moment will be too late!
Don’t wait until it is too late.
Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
(Hebrews 12:2 (NIV))
Turn your eyes upon Jesus!
