Last month Halifax Police and the RCMP foiled a planned massacre of innocent people in a shopping centre. This frightening event followed the fatal terrorist attacks in Quebec and Ottawa last Fall. Many Canadians are afraid. The Book of Luke refers to the last days, and “ men’s hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth. “ We live in scary times. But Timothy, in the New Testament, gives the antidote to fear for those who have come into a right relationship with God through faith. in Christ, writing, “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. As Part of God’s family, we can say with Paul, “I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth nor any other created being shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. What assurance and peace!
