How are we to respond to crisis and conflict? Let us not cancel. Let us not avoid. Let us not quit. But let us trust in God’s sovereignty and pray for boldness as we act in faith.

A new day has come. By His resurrection, the son of God shines like the dawn of the new day. This is the story that must stay with you. This is the story that will steady you. We have lots of chances of turning back. We may have already turned back at so many points. But let’s not turn back any longer. Let’s keep going, because we know what we are holding on to.

That in the midst of it all, Jesus Christ has risen, that he is reigning, and that he will return. That He is worth fighting for. He is worth dying for. He is worth living for.
