As natural disasters increase, the economy falters and terrorism rises, it is easy to become anxious about what the future holds. Even Christians sometimes look at current events and become fearful even though the Scriptures repeatedly say do not be afraid. How, then, should we respond when we hear troubling news in the economy, watch the trembling of war in the Middle East and see storms heading our way?
Wallace Henley, assistant pastor of Second Baptist Church in Houston, TX and columnist for Christian Post, provides Christians hope in his book “Globequake” by teaching how to become unshakeable “while the world falls apart”.
Stabilizing the family and being a part of a church family that adheres to the teaching of Scripture can help Christians become indestructible in the face of impending doom. The world is influenced by every prevailing wind whereas Christians are called to trust in God’s unchanging kingdom regardless of what is going on in the world around them. These globequakes, as Henley calls them, is an opportunity for Christians to draw closer to Christ and renew their faith.
Henley did not write “Globequake” in order to spark fear and anxiety. Instead, it was written in response to the fear and anxiety he sees in Christians and non-Christians every day. The world has been filled with crisis since the beginning. Anchored to Christ, Christians can withstand any crisis the world dishes out.
