Fear in our Times August 16, 2016

Last month following the racially charged shootings in Dallas, Minnesota and Louisiana the United States, Attorney General, Loretta Lynch said, “Americans across our country are feeling a sense of helplessness, of uncertainty, and of fear.” Her words remind us of Luke’s predictions concerning the final days of this world as we know it. He spoke of “men’s hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth…” But if we are Christians, we need not be afraid, since God is ultimately in control of events. When we have Christ in our lives, we can be comforted by Paul’s words to believers, writing, “… God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” With Christ in the vessel, we can smile at our storms.
