“…there will be distress of nations, with perplexity…men’s hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on earth.” The events in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, and now right here in our country, confirm and illustrate the truthfulness of these words from the gospel of Luke. Around the world the threat of terrorism has indeed produced great fear, because it seems that there nowhere can one be safe. Into this crisis Jesus the Son of God comes, with these comforting words, “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in me.” So many today give lip-service to God, or a god, but do not believe in the Jesus of the bible. That is a fatal mistake in light of Jesus’ later words, when He said, “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” As world conditions worsen, and fear increases, Jesus tells us that we can have peace when our hearts are troubled, by becoming personally related to Him by faith.
