These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world.
Looking at the news on television or social media will make you think that life is not going to be any better. There is political unrest, economic instability, wars and rumors of wars, sickness without cure, crimes and death. This bring such negative thoughts and perspective. This is a fallen and dark world.
This is why Jesus Christ who is God became man. He had the ultimate rescue plan. He wanted to redeem and restore mankind by being the ultimate sacrifice for the atonement of our sins. It was through his death and resurrection that we can have hope again. Jesus reminds us that this world may look dark but if we put our faith in Him, we become overcomers and conquerors. We can experience peace in the most turmoil of situations and find joy in difficult circumstances. We can also bring this peace and joy to the people that need a touch of Jesus by being a blessing to them. Imagine if the whole world would give their life to Jesus – the world will experience the power of the Light of God in dark places!
Lord Jesus, thank you for the sacrifice that you have made on the cross. Thank you that regardless of what is happening in my life and around the world, there is hope in you. I have peace because you live in me. Help me to share with people your goodness. Amen!
Speak the promises of God today in your life. Release blessings and reach out to people that need to hear the Good news of Jesus Christ.
