Reading the news these days can be a scary business. Violence, injustice, poverty, the list goes on and on. In response, many may place their hope in good deeds, scientific advancements, or politics. Yet none of these can truly overcome evil.
As followers of Christ, we can live with peace even in the darkness, for we know that the battle has already been won. This past weekend we celebrated our salvation in the death and resurrection of Jesus. This is the true hope of the world. It is a “a living hope … an inheritance which is imperishable and undefiled and will not fade away,” (1 Peter 1: 3-4).
The world is desperate for this Hope. May we go forth and share it hear, near, and far.
