There’s no doubt that when you turn on the news, it reveals the wicked and cold world you live in. That scripture indeed was right when it says that in the times of the end the hearts of many shall wax cold. (Matthew 24:12) You see it on the news, over social media and even through some of the shows and movies that people choose to indulge themselves in. No matter where you turn, the world reveals it’s a troublesome place.
Knowing this however, its important you find that outlet of peace. That in the midst of chaos your world can remain steady. Where do you find this peace? In Christ. In the scripture meditation today, Jesus speaks very clearly to this truth. That because He has overcome the world, you too can overcome it’s troubles by choosing to rest in Him.
As you abide in Christ and He in you, you will bear much fruit. (John 15) One of the fruits of the spirit is peace. (Galatians 5:22) So the way to find peace in such a troubled world is to simply choose to abide in Jesus. The one who is the way, the truth and the life.
“These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.””
John 16:33 NKJV
