Every time I turn on the news these days, I expect to hear about some new, horrific, horrible tragedy taking place somewhere in the world. It’s become so prevalent that it can seem that evil is triumphing, but the truth of the matter, it will last only for a season. The same evil that rejoiced over the crucifixion and death of Christ relinquished its triumph just three days later at His joyous resurrection.
The evil taking place today will one day meet the same fate. But until that day, those who revere the name of the Lord are called to continue to press ahead with a bold spirit – to keep the faith, fight the good fight, and finish the race – all in eager anticipation for the sun of righteousness that will rise with healing in its rays.
