Rumours of War and Peace

March 8th, 2014

I was talking to a friend recently and they were telling me they saw a Bible verse in the local newspaper. It was in the “Today’s Verse” section.

The thing that I found interesting is that even they do not profess to be a person of faith it gave them a sense of peace and comfort.

The verse was Mark 13:7-8. It says, “When you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be earthquakes in various places, and famines. These are the beginning of birth pains”.

After reading these verses they felt a sense of peace that even though there are wars and countries rising up against each other, that it will be o.k. because God knows about it. And if God knows about it, then He is in control.

I thought it was really cool that a Bible verse in the local secular paper could give someone a sense of peace even when they were not a professing believer!

God works in amazing ways and it just goes to show if we get His Word out there it can make a difference in the lives of others.

God Bless,
