"And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age." Matthew 28:20
This assurance of Jesus has encouraged and supported Christians from the time of the first disciples up to today. The problems of today are serious, beyond doubt...but serious problems have been part of the history of humanity in many ages. Jesus has been present in each of those times.
