From Pastor Toensing

Jesus our Lord said the world would be troubled and in constant conflict until He comes to restore all things to their right way (see Matthew 24). It is often hard to accept that we must wait on God to fix things. It is hard to accept that He does not do as we want Him to do now. He will fix things. Conflicts will come to an end. Peace will be restored—He will do it. In His time. In His way. And faith trusts Him even when we cannot see the results we would like to see now. We trust in Christ alone for salvation. We live according to His commands. We seek to do His will which is being faithful to His Word and promises—and this includes prayer and patience. (Read more...)
