The world is changing and crisis plagues the nations; hunger, homelessness,
political uprisings, economic uncertainty, wars… and the ever present threat of terrorism. Where can we find hope in these uncertain times?

Daily news reports focus our attention on global events which indicate a world in turmoil. But as distressing as all these events are, there is a crisis that is even more urgent: the fact that death awaits us all. When we die and leave the earth, we must all stand before God.

It is appointed for men to die once and then the judgment. Why judgment? God is holy and just. But man is sinful and morally bankrupt. So our sin makes us guilty before God. Have you disregarded God and worshiped other things such as people, things, and pleasure? Have you dishonored parents, hated others (this is murder in the heart), looked with lust or engaged in immoral sex (both which are adultery) or lied? How about stealing, envy, greed, blaspheming God’s name, selfishness, unthankfufness, self righteousness or pride? This willful sin is the breaking of God’s Law. It will hopelessly condemn men on Judgment Day. Where will your hope be then?

But in His loving kindness, God Himself provides the true hope for us through the death and resurrection of His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. Unlike ordinary men, Jesus Christ is God. His death on the cross was the judgment and wrath of God that we deserve. He paid our debt in His blood. Justice for sin has been satisfied through Him. He rose from the dead, defeating death! The whole world stands hopeless and condemned in sin. But Jesus said, “He who hears my word and believes Him who sent Me, has eternal life and does not come into judgment but has passed out of death into life.” Jesus came into the world to save sinners. He is our only hope.
