How is Our World Doing?

Have you ever looked out on the world and wished you could do something to relieve its agony? I have. We’re not the only ones. Two millennia ago Jesus looked at the state of the world and saw that it was time to offer the sacrifice He and the Father had planned. He therefore humbled Himself and became one of us, to set in motion the atonement that would liberate all generations of His people and deliver them to eternal life with Him - and one another - in a new earth under new heavens. 1/

”For while we were still helpless, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. For one will hardly die for a righteous man; though perhaps for the good man someone would dare even to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from the wrath of God through Him. For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. And not only this, but we also exult in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation.” 2/
