Riding a taxi in many international cities can be quite a thrill. It can also strengthen your faith in God! In Taipei, Republic of China, I inquired after the many religious relics the driver had hanging from his rearview mirror. He explained that he was a Buddhist and that the religious symbols were meant to help him avert disaster on the road. I asked him if, as a Buddhist, he had any confidence whether after death he might attain nirvana. As with almost every Buddhist I have met, he had absolutely no certainty of his future prospects.
The good news is that we can have peace with God now! We can receive the gift of eternal life now. We can have the wonderful assurance of salvation that comes not by works but rather by our faith in the accomplished work of Christ on the cross on our behalf. The gospel is about a person - Jesus!
