You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pains.

– Matthew 24:6-8 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

We would do well to remind ourselves that recent natural disasters and the issues in the Ukraine are nothing new. The entire earth is groaning for the return of Jesus Christ. Don’t let these events hinder us with fear. If anything, these events should cause us to pray even more fervently, “Come Lord Jesus! Come.” God is on the move to renew a creation suffering under the pain of the Garden of Eden, and he invites us to join him in the battle with prayer and action.
