Do you ever feel frightened at the violent and virulent opposition to Christ and to Christians that surrounds and threatens us today? I do. But I’m more scared for my children than for myself. If it’s like this now, what it be like for them in ten years or twenty years time? How do we fight fear of faith’s foes? How do we find peace during the world’s war against Christians. In a very real sense, this is the first world war. It’s first in time (the oldest), intensity, devastation, and casualties.
When fear of faith’s foes froth and flood my heart, I turn to Psalm 2 and there I find the calming confidence of Christ.
