Hope for the World
Almost every headline, every television news report, and every radio bulletin these days proclaims one essential truth: The modern world is in chaos and no one has a realistic solution. Wherever you look today there are storm clouds of anger and outrage. There is violence, abuse, and unhappiness swirling about us. We see crime and unrest in the inner city, and the economy is dangerously out of control. The whole world is crying out for some word of hope, but all we hear is the babble of wishful thinkers and charlatans. Psychologists, educators, social scientists, physicians, and media wizards of every stripe offer pronouncements and preachments but even the best ideas generate collapse under closer scrutiny. So far, our modern secular society has produced no positive answers; yet we continue to reach out in hope.
Actually, there is still good reason to hope; there is still time. For with society’s failure comes the chance to repent and seek renewal. If we recognize the failures of living without God and turn from our foolishness and disobedience, we may yet be able to receive God’s mercy and forgiveness.
Today’s headlines are God’s warning to a sinful world. The television news flashes area shadow of His loving hand at work, pushing for the world’s redemption. That radio bulletins area reminder that in spite of our compulsive determination to ruin the earth and destroy God’s program of salvation, He has not given up on us completely. Until that day when God’s final judgment affixes each of us into place for eternity, there is a chance to begin again. Jesus said, “You must be born again” (John 3:7). That is the last best hope for this world. Ultimately it is our only hope.
