As I write this Church Doctor Report, the world is—what? Shaky? Uncertain? Scary? Ukraine and Israel (and some of their neighbors) are at war—or threatening. In the US, protesters are for or against the nation’s involvement in these wars. This moment in time reflects an unsettled world.
God chose to send the promised Messiah when Israel—the land God gave to His people—was occupied by the feared Romans, who taxed the people and sent the money to a pagan emperor. And we say God’s timing is perfect?
Oh yes! Troubled people are hungry for hope. Jesus is the hope of the world. In Jeremiah 29:11, Scripture says, “’For I know the plans I have for you,’ says the Lord, ‘plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.’” This is a great time to grasp—and share—what really matters. First Peter 3:15 says, “Always be prepared to make a defense to anyone who calls you to account for the hope that is within you, yet do it with gentleness and reverence” (emphasis mine).
