The apostle John writes Jesus' final words to the disciples before the cross.

John 16:33  [Jesus said] "These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace.  In the world you will have tribulation, but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world."  (NKJV)

There is a lot to be fearful about:  job and financial issues, health and family, etc. etc.  Add to that the threat of terrorism, refugee and illegal immigrant issues -- and in 2016 America will choose a new president!  How does a person cope?

It's refreshing to note that feelings of fear are not unusual.  In fact, Jesus says facing fearful situations is part of the normal Christian life!  The difference for the Christ-follower is . . . the One we serve has defeated the best this world can throw at us!  His victory is our victory!!
