Psalm 30:5 – For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.
Because of our sins, God could justifiably condemn all to oblivion and destruction. However, the Bible tells a different story. Jesus said that whosoever believes in Him has eternal life. Jesus indeed saves!
We have this tremendous hope that no matter the difficulties we face, no matter the sadness that befalls us, Jesus has saved those that trust in Him. In fact even the existence of that faith tells us that it is true. Jesus’ disciples do not simply conform to a set of ethics. We conform to the very image of Christ in faithful trust in Him.
