The COVID-19 coronavirus is impacting almost every corner of the globe. Its massive reach, spread, and death toll has earned it the title of a “pandemic.” Drastic global measures have been taken to try and contain it, including cancellations, travel restrictions, closed borders, and mandated quarantines. Parts of the world are experiencing an almost complete stop to normal life. This is a truly unique moment in world history.
Evolving and alarming headlines have fueled worldwide uncertainty and rampant fear. Humanity’s extensive scientific and medical knowledge is insufficient. This virus has spun out of our control.
We grieve for those who have lost their lives or loved ones. We grieve the physical, emotional, and financial repercussions of this pandemic. We are grateful for those working tirelessly to care for the sick, curb the spread, and create a cure and vaccine.
But most importantly, we stop to remember these Biblical truths about COVID-19:
So, let’s lift our eyes from the headlines and fix them on Jesus.
Let's pray – because no quarantine will ever stop its power and reach.
And let’s share the Hope of the Gospel with those around us!
May this worldwide crisis bring unprecedented numbers to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, their Savior!
If you ask me anything in my name, I will do it. - John 14:14
