We definitely live in days of uncertainty.
These uncertainties include whether or not we will contract the coronavirus or if we will contract it again and how will it affect us? They include the possibility of having to deal with other physical and health challenges.
They include questions about the economy or whether or not our jobs are secure. They include the political future and how those elected could change our future.
They include the possibility of war and natural disasters. They include the results of addressing injustice and what those results look like.
I am not trying to depress you, but all of these things are things we think about and can affect us mentally, psychologically and physically.
If you are a follower of Jesus Christ, then it makes all of the difference in the world. Spiritually speaking, we can have peace even in the middle of the storm.
Jesus said that the peace he gives us is not compared to the peace the world offers. It is a peace that will be with us in all circumstances.
But there is another important point – if some of life’s challenges would have an end result of us losing every possession we own, our God has promised to meet our basic needs. Even if they result in the loss of our physical life, we still win.
Jesus said in John 11:25-26, “He who believes in me will live even if he dies (physically), and everyone who lives and believes in me will never die (spiritually).”
In other words, we can have eternal life and live in this wonderful place called heaven for ever and ever.
I have some more good news for you: if you are not a follower of Jesus, you are invited to be. So come on in and be part of the family.
