Hello, friends! If you’re in the northern hemisphere, I hope you’re having a wonderful summer! (And if you’re in the southern hemisphere, I hope you’re having a wonderful winter!) 😉 My ten years in Cape Town, South Africa won’t let me think about seasons the same way ever again . . . 😉

This week’s FMF writing prompt is: WORLD

 

 

Ready? GO. 

I chose this prompt several weeks ago, and when I opened my blog to write today, I admit the first thing that came to mind was, “What is wrong with the world today?!” 

Of course I know the answer: sin. Sin is what is wrong with the world. All of the brokenness, the hurt, the pain, the sadness, the crime, the wrong in the world can be traced back to the fall of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. 

In many ways, that reality is discouraging. But it’s also encouraging, because it means there is hope. 

There is hope for our future — both in this life, and in the next. 

Because God has given us a solution for sin through His Son, Jesus Christ. He is the answer. 

Through the gospel, the good news of Jesus Christ coming down from heaven, dying on the cross, resurrecting from the dead, and ascending into heaven, we have hope that sin does not have the final victory. Death, destruction, wicked, and evil have been conquered through Christ’s finished work on the cross. 

I don’t know about you, but that gives me tremendous hope.

It helps me look forward to eternity with my Savior, where there will be no more death, crying, or pain. 

But it also spurs me on to share the good news with those who have not yet believed. Believing in the gospel of Jesus Christ and obeying God’s Word is the only way we can experience true and lasting positive transformation. 

It’s the only way this world will ever change, until Jesus returns. 

STOP.
