“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!

Jesus is our strength!

Who will not fear you, O Lord,
and bring glory to your name?
For you alone are holy.
All nations will come
and worship before you,
for your righteous acts have been revealed.
(Revelation 15:4 (NIV))

I hate to say this, but in our present wordily state, not that many people fear the Lord. Far too many mock and ridicule God and those who follow Him and accept the name of His Son, Jesus, as their personal Lord and Savior.

It is sad that so many have not only turned their back on God, they have openly rebelled against Him. They have claimed all types of lies against God and against His Son. They have been blinded by the false delusions of the enemy.

We can’t let the enemy win!

Each person that believes the lies is a person who is desperately in need of the grace, mercy and love that is freely available from God the Father through the shed blood of His Son, Jesus.

Does it feel like we are facing overwhelming odds?

We do not face them on our own strength!

“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))

You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.
(1 John 4:4 (NIV))

With the current state of the world, it is so easy to lose hope. I’ve got a little secret to share with you!

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))

Keep your eyes on Jesus! Jesus is our strength.
