HAVING FAITH IN TIMES OF DISTRESS
Distress, it seems, is the norm for humanity stricken by sin. We read about it in our news feeds constantly and we can get the feeling that the world, locally and globally, is collapsing around us. Because of Jesus, even in these distressing times, we have reason for hope. Indeed, we have reason to be joyful. Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. – James 1:2-3. You will never find authentic true peace without God. So we cast our anxieties and fears upon Him. He alone can give us the strength and love that conquers all.
