Luke 21:25 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;(26) Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.
PEOPLE'S HEARTS ARE FAILING FOR FEAR
We certainly live in perilous times. We need only turn on the news or read a paper and it seems that there is something new that should scare us.
Terrorism seems to continue in spite of the War being raged against it. Our government is enough to make us all be a little fearful when we look at the massive failures of the last several years.
Experts keep telling us of the terrible economy. (Personally I can't tell that I am much worse off than I have been all along.)
The News is constantly showing us how dangerous our food supply, medicine, and water is.
Crime is on the rise. We are constantly at war. I could go on and on with the list of things that cause us to be fearful but the one thing we must remember is that all this is temporary.
This world and this life will pass away but there is peace and victory in Jesus Christ who is eternal. I have nothing in the world to fear because this world is not my home, I am just passing through on my way to my eternal home.
