I am reflecting on the great pain our country has experienced in the last few days, weeks and months. The virus has struck fear in our hearts and the heart of people, young and old, around the world. The unlawful actions of people in authority and others in the general public makes it seem like things are spiraling out of control and is destroying any hope we have. Then I reflected on what it is that we teach in our classes. We teach about a God who loves us and wants to have a personal relationship with each one of us.
With all the fear and violence that has been a part of our lives, the focus on the answer, the Gospel of Jesus Christ, seems to get crowded out. We turn to legislators and peaceful protest so that our voices can be heard. However, those actions are a human response to cry out and demand change. The only thing that will bring true peace and lasting change is a transformation of hearts through the power of Jesus Christ. Regardless of man’s state in life we teach that everyone was born with sin in our lives as it says in Romans 3:23 “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,” but Jesus came to bring hope. We believe Christ lived a sinless life here on earth, was arrested, falsely accused and suffered a cruel death on the cross, was buried and on the third day rose again from death.
This message brings the hope each person needs. The hope of deliverance from the consequence of our sin being replaced with the hope of eternal life. Redemption through the power of Jesus Christ is where we can find lasting peace. From this position we can live in the light of the love of Christ as it says in I Corinthians 13:8, 13 Love never fails… and now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.” Sometimes it is the hardest thing to do especially in light of fear and injustice, but God calls us to demonstrate His love for us. That is the message that we can find the greatest hope in, the hope for the future of all mankind.
