Terror and death may be all around us, but our Lord Jesus says FEAR NOT! He would have us remember…
“In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” (Gen. 1:1 ESV) God’s STILL in control as the Creator of all.
“For the wages of sin is death…” (Rom. 6:23a ESV) All WILL die, so it should never surprise us.
“…but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Rom. 6:23b ESV) Jesus freely gives us victory over death.
“Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine.” (Isa. 43:1 ESV) Our call by Jesus sets us free from fear.
“Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.” (Gen. 2:24, Matt. 19:5,Eph. 5:31 ESV) Marriage in God’s way will endure at the heart of His creation.
“Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.” (Matt. 24:35 ESV) Every promise from Jesus is sure!
And so, in the midst of all that sin and Satan will send our way, we need not fear, but we have the joyful confidence to GIVE THANKS!
