Whatâ€™s happening around the world is frightening for many. ThingsÂ are happening with such rapidity that even the most seasonedÂ analysts are not sure what will happen tomorrow. Governments areÂ intervening at a national level to prop up the financial systems andÂ to plug the holes in the dikes, but it seems that no sooner have theyÂ patched one hole with hundreds of millions of dollars, than somethingÂ else breaks loose.
People are worried about the future and well they might be. AccordingÂ to the Bible, the darkest days this world has ever known are in theÂ future. People try to laugh off apocalyptic fears. They have heard cultsÂ prophesying of coming doom that never materializes. They have heardÂ the Biblical warnings of an antichrist who will emerge and dominate theÂ world stage in the end times. But since â€˜nothingâ€™ has happened yet, theyÂ cynically mock.
These are uncertain times. Everything seems so volatile with only aÂ hairline between order and chaos, stability and anarchy. What is yourÂ anchor? Are you absolutely sure of anything? No one knows Godâ€™sÂ timetable but God Himself, and no one has any right to forecast thatÂ within so many months or so many years this or that will happenÂ according to the Bible. But be sure of this: the Lord Jesus Christ willÂ return, and it could be at any moment. Are you ready?
Christians have faced the fact that their sins deserve eternalÂ punishment. They have discovered that salvation is found in Jesus ChristÂ alone, and have rested upon Him for their personal salvation. EvenÂ though Christians may lose their jobs, investments, children, marriagesÂ or homes, they have an anchor: They can never lose their souls and areÂ sure of eternal life in Heaven.
Eternal life is offered during your lifetime as a free gift (Romans 6:23).Â You either accept it or reject it. â€œHe that hath the Son hath life; and he thatÂ hath not the Son of God hath not life. These things have I written unto youÂ that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye haveÂ eternal lifeâ€ (1 John 5:12-13).
Have you ever received Jesus Christ as your own Saviour? â€œAs many asÂ received Him, to them gave He power to become the children of God, even toÂ them that believe on His nameâ€ (John 1:12).
