The world we live in can be a place of seemingly relentless evil. Our lives also are filled with times that are so difficult and heartbreaking that it's often hard to find the strength to keep going. When the world and life knock you down, where do you get the resources to persevere? How can you persist in "doing good" when you feel weary and want to give up? This passage shows us by pointing us to the hope that only the gospel can offer.
