In Christianity, God reached down toward humanity and gave himself as a sacrifice so we could be in relationship with Him. That’s God’s Grace – the Good News of the Gospel.

We Christians can hold onto hope, even in the midst of all the negativity around us because we trust that God is in control. – No ruler has been put in power for whom God didn’t have a say. – No natural disaster has caught God by surprise. – COVID wasn’t unexpected, and all the results it brought were within God’s plan. God DOES have a plan that He will work right up until the day the trumpet sounds and time runs out for this earth.
As Christians, the virtues we should be signaling to the world are very different from what our culture is signaling.
