I’m Worried About Another War

You’ve seen the headlines about military attacks and spiraling political conflict. It can all be scary and unnerving. Some days it seems the threats and violence are only getting worse, with no end in sight.

With all the civil unrest going on, is another war inevitable?

Whether you’re angry, anxiously bracing for what’s next or just sick of all the fighting, remember this:

Jesus Christ has already won the battle between good and evil. “In the world, you will have tribulation,” He tells us in the Bible. “But take heart; I have overcome the world” (John 16:33). He overcame the evil in the world when He died for the sins of humanity, giving us inner peace when we put our faith in Him.

There’s always going to be wickedness because of the sin inside us, yet we don’t have to be afraid. When Jesus Christ is in our lives, He is always with us. Whether it’s persecution and suffering or death and devastation—no matter how much bad news you may hear, He has the final say.

Yes, the world is broken. Yes, we have destruction, violence and endless battles. But you can have peace through it all—a lasting peace stronger than any fear or anxiety that comes your way. Why not trust the One who knows everything, even the things we can’t understand?

Find peace today.

Step 1 – God loves you and has a plan for you!

The Bible says, “God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, [Jesus Christ], that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life” (John 3:16). Jesus said, “I came that they may have life and have it abundantly”—a complete life full of purpose (John 10:10). But here’s the problem:

Step 2 – People are sinful and separated from God.

We have all done, thought or said bad things, which the Bible calls “sin.” The Bible says, “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). The result of sin is death, spiritual separation from God (Romans 6:23). The good news?

Step 3 – God sent His Son to die for your sins!

Jesus died in our place so we could have a relationship with God and be with Him forever. “God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8). But it didn’t end with His death on the cross. He rose again and still lives! “Christ died for our sins. … He was buried. … He was raised on the third day, according to the Scriptures” (1 Corinthians 15:3-4). Jesus is the only way to God. Jesus said, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but through Me” (John 14:6).

Step 4 – Would you like to receive God’s forgiveness?

We can’t earn salvation; we are saved by God’s grace when we have faith in His Son, Jesus Christ. All you have to do is believe you are a sinner, that Christ died for your sins, and ask His forgiveness. Then turn from your sins—that’s called repentance. Jesus Christ knows you and loves you. What matters to Him is the attitude of your heart, your honesty. We suggest praying the following prayer to accept Christ as your Savior:

"Dear God, I know I’m a sinner, and I ask for your forgiveness. I believe Jesus Christ is Your Son. I believe that He died for my sin and that you raised Him to life. I want to trust Him as my Savior and follow Him as Lord, from this day forward. Guide my life and help me to do your will. I pray this in the name of Jesus. Amen."
