“These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life.”  I John 5:13   Life is often like observing live sporting events.  There are shocks and surprises, frustrations, and fears because we are unsure of the outcome.  Followers of Christ can draw comfort, however, from the fact that though many of life’s situations are uncertain, our eternal outcome is settled by the work of Jesus on the cross. Life may present us with surprises along the way, but because of Christ’s work we can have peace.  He has already settled our eternal outcome.  Peace rules the day when Christ rules the heart.
