A Savior to cling to.
I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world. – John 16:33
When the Boston bombings happened, I couldn’t help but think how soon this happened after the Sandy Hook shooting. Should this be so surprising though, with sin loose in the world? A lot worse things happen in other countries, many of which we never hear about. It would be a terrifying thing if I didn’t have a Savior to cling to. I think of Jesus’ promise before he was crucified in John 16 … “in the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.” I mourn for the people who have suffered in these bombings and shootings and even more for those who have committed the crimes. We are all sinners and I pray that the gospel of Christ would rescue each of us, no matter what the sin.
