God gives His children courage


Church Calendar

Charles Warner | The Union Daily Times The world is often a very big, very scary and very dangerous place, so much so that it is often easy to allow ourselves to be overwhelmed and paralyzed by fear. When then that happens, especially in those situations where courage is required, then the world becomes an even bigger, scarier and more dangerous place. For those who believe and trust in God, however, the world is not such a big place because the believer, the Christian, knows that God is bigger and more powerful than the world and all its dangers. For the Christian the world is not so scary because they know that God is real and He will never leave nor forsake them and will always be there to guide, protect and care for them, even in the face of death which every Christian knows is not the end, but for them is the beginning of eternity with their Lord and Savior. The Christian knows that as dangerous as the world is, its dangers are nothing compared to glory, power and majesty of God and that no matter how formidable they may appear to be, the dangers of this world are but temporary things while God is forever. The Christian knows all of this and because they know this they can live a life of courage which, like salvation itself, is a gift from God. Those who know God are blessed with the courage that comes from knowing that the source of their courage, of their salvation, is real and will always sustain them in this world and in eternity.
