The spread of Ebola is front-page news in most papers I read lately. It’s one more piece of evidence that we live in a fallen world, as if we needed more examples amidst wars and rumors of wars. Romans 8 tells us that the creation itself is in bondage to decay and “groaning as in the pains of childbirth.”
Where can we find certainty in all this uncertainty? Hebrews 13:8 has the answer: “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” I see myself clinging to the hem of His garment as we (Jesus and me) pass through rivers sweeping over us and walk through fires of affliction.
