It is easy to watch the news for an hour, or read the paper, or search articles online and come away thinking that we must be nearing the end. The truth is, this world in which we live, it’s always been nearing the end – but the days in which we live are no different than those the disciples walked nearly 2,000 years ago. Peter urged those listening to him, “Save yourself from this crooked generation” (Acts 2:40), just as Paul explained, “Jesus gave his life for our sins, just as God our Father planned, in order to rescue us from this evil world in which we live” (Galatians 1:4).
The times are indeed still wicked and every moment that passes brings us nearer the climax of time on this earth as we know it! Thank God for His grace and mercy which rescued you from this evil world. Pray that as His longsuffering continues others will come to know His Son and find eternal life also.
