“in the same way, when you see these things happening, know that the Kingdom of God is near.” The culture, TV, etc. all warn about the “end of the world.” We are bombarded by such dire warnings. But each end is a new beginning. There is nothing to fear. Our own demise will happen long before the whole world comes to an end. God is calling us to life with Him. Past, present, and future, God comes to save us, strengthening our hearts with abundant love. We need to be prepared for God to break into our lives at any moment.
