I have been a Christian for many years and throughout my life God has given me hope, strength and peace, whether my circumstances have been easy or hard.
Chaos all around
At this time the world is in a state of crisis caused by the Coronavirus and fear is rampant. Many people are worried about the uncertainty and insecurity we face as all we depend on is being shaken. What will happen if our human resources run out? Is there a God and does He know or care? Will this end and is there hope for us?
There is hope!
I believe YES! There is a God who loves and cares for us.
For God so loved the world that He gave His only son, so that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.(John 3: 16)
We can experience peace and security
It is possible to experience God’s peace even when we are facing difficulties and uncertainties. If we choose to acknowledge Him, accept His Son Jesus Christ who died for us, and receive forgiveness, then we will enter into a personal relationship with Him. This will enable us to live in a place of peace, love and security.
No fear of death
Of course, we hope and pray that the present crisis will end, but whatever happens, the only truly safe place to be, I believe, is in a place of trust and hope in God. We need not be afraid of death because He has promised that everyone who believes in Him will have eternal life.
I believe that we are getting close to the time of Jesus’ return and what we are seeing are signs that this event is near. Let’s make sure that we are ready by turning to Him.
Jesus said, “In me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”(John 16:33)
