In a world consumed with hate, fear, immorality, and greed, where can you turn? The only answer is Jesus. You knew that was coming, and perhaps you think it’s trite or cliché. That doesn’t make it untrue. What’s happening doesn’t surprise God, and it shouldn’t surprise us either. He told us this was coming in His Word. Jesus said, “There will be wars and rumors of wars” (Matthew 24:6).
It’s been this way since sin entered the world and it becomes increasingly more vicious the longer sin keeps compounding. Until the Lord returns to reign, there will not be peace on earth. Until Christ comes for His bride, the Church will have trouble in this world (John 16:33). There is no magic fix for what ails our planet. There is only Jesus.
