Faith in the God of love can bring great happiness and confidence for "perfect love casts out all fear." The warnings about the end times in the Scriptures are meant to be a source of hope for us, not fear, for "Christ, by his death and resurrection, has achieved our sanctification." All we need to do is to place our trust in Christ and so be able to make the words of today's psalm our own: "You will show me the path of life, the fullness of joy in your presence."
