In our life- time, we have seen violence, hatred, and conflict sweep across our lives, either directly or indirectly. What has become of the security we once felt in our Christian experience? What are some reasons for this feeling of insecurity in our lives today? The first one is this: loss of an awareness of God. lgtany of our friends do not have a vital experience of the Divine Presence of the Holy Spirit. There are those who think that life ceases with death. For them, there is no resurrec- tion. Another is this: that mate- rialism has overcome and con- quered the spiritual. Larger and more beautiful times, bigger factories, more powerful weapons. These things bring security. Do they? Another is this: impersonalism. Much of our city life today is imperson- al.

Premature marriages, quick divorces, illegitimate births, all reflect thebreakdown of our family life. These attitudes bring about a feeling of insecu- rity. The answer to the Christians' search for security is Jesus. The Christian, as he lives in today's world, a world which is full of change, finds his security only in Jesus. It is found in Jesus' revelation of God. It is found in the human worth of each indi- vidual child of God. It is found in the assurance of God's world that humans have purpose and meaning. Above all, it is found to God's redemptive plan that is at work in us and with us. Let us be thankful that God has taken the initiative. He accepts and forgives us. He gives us power to become His children, and He has conquered death for What advice would a young person to future?
