Our mentality of the Church is generally the structure – yes, The Lord’s House. But we must accept the truth that even when we walk outside the Church Building ,we are the Church. When they attack the Church they attack you and I who are born again. The reality has never been as it is now.
Believers worldwide have found themselves unable to fellowship and interact as usual. We are not able to hold crusades and conferences, no more pulpit ministry as usual until the threat of the dreaded disease is over.
I remembered Acts 8 when the Church was persecuted and had to scatter. Everyone preached where he landed. Philip took over Samaria. He was not crying or traumatized and worried about what he could not do or where he could not go but did what he could do – preach Christ in Samaria. The entire city was filled with joy. Glory to God! Dear brothers and sisters, do what you can. Preach to your neighborhood, the person you meet by the road and let the banner of Jesus be lifted up.
Complaining about the damage cannot make any difference. Cursing darkness does not eliminate it. Switch on your light and advance.
We are the light of the world ,the salt of the earth! Light is relevant in darkness and salt is useful where it is needed. This is the right time to display our usability especially now that the cloud of uncertainty covers the whole world . Airports are rendered useless, holidays don’t make any sense, no more retreats and no more normalcy yet we know of one sure source of joy and comfort, our Lord Jesus Christ. Let us announce Him and declare His majesty!
Lest we forget, the final judgment upon sinners will be more terrible than what we see today. That day, those on the wrong side will desire that they would be stricken by Coronavirus rather than face worms that don’t die and fire that never goes off, burning with sulfur. We must remind people that sin is more corrosive than Corona. You can recover from the virus but a time will come when it will be too late to repent. Take advantage of the opportunity you have now.
Castigate sin and tell the world to keep an eternal distance from sin.
Sanitize by the Blood of Jesus
Stay in the secret place of the most high.
Wear the full armor protective gear
Above all the health precautions. It is healthier to have Jesus as your Lord and savior.
God bless you as you meditate on this.
