There’s an old hymn, that says, “In times like these, you need a Savior, In times like these, you need an anchor…In times like these, you need the Bible.” These lines can help guide us through a challenging and potentially dangerous season.
Jesus offers the repeated admonition, "DO NOT FEAR" and "DO NOT BE AFRAID." As a matter of fact, these are two of the most often repeated phrases in all of scripture. One of those verses, from Psalm 46 says, “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in times of trouble. Therefore, we will not fear.” These verses do not minimize the presence of danger, or trouble. Instead, they suggest that because there is help in the time of trouble, we need not be afraid. We are called as people of faith to place our trust in God, recognizing that God sometimes uses men and women, even unexpected men and women, as agents to deliver that ever-present help. The apostle, Paul writes to the Christians of Rome, “Let every person be subject to the governing authorities…For rulers are not a terror to good conduct, but to bad.”
The Peace of Christ Be With You,
