We have just observed Memorial Day when we honor those of our country who have sacrificed their lives for the heritage and freedom of this country. They also died to deliver from despots and to provide peace for the world. What is the result? We are living in relative freedom, but our Christian heritage is slowly being destroyed. Satan is delighted with progress. The world is constantly at war, and wicked, ungodly despots are oppressing the people in more and more countries.
What is the answer? God from the very beginning of the world planned to have His Son come and be a sin sacrifice for all the people of the world. God also planned that in the future of the world there would come a time of peace, righteousness and freedom. This time is fast approaching when the Lord Jesus Christ will come again and rule the world for a thousand years in peace and righteousness. Only those who accept Christ as the substitute sacrifice for their sin will enjoy God’s plan for peace and freedom.
What about you? “In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him. –God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life. I John 4:9, 5:11-12. Choose life today.
