Keep the Faith!

We live in a world broken by sin. This isn’t news to any of us. We  see the evidence of that fact all around us, don’t we? We see it in families torn apart by sin. We see it in nations that are pitted against one another. We see it in moral standards that seem to be getting lower all the time. We see it in nations and peoples who are oppressed and stricken with poverty. We see it in riots. We see it  when senseless acts of evil are carried out, like the recent tragedies in Buffalo and Uvalde.  

Sin, evil, and death are all around us. And at times we all find ourselves feeling as though evil is winning. Maybe you have found your self wondering, will things ever change? Will it always be this way?  

The wonderful thing about the Christian faith is that it gives us hope in the midst of such evil and brokenness. Scripture teaches us that things will not always be the way they are! God has a plan to do away with evil, sin, and death once and for all! Look at what John writes about this hope. 

“He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no  more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.” –Revelation 21:4 

Don’t lose hope! Things will not always be as they are today. A day is coming when the former things (sin, evil, death, pain, and suffering, etc.) will pass away! What a day that will be!
