“Don’t be afraid of those who want to kill your body; they cannot touch your soul. Fear only God, who can destroy both soul and body in hell.” Matthew 10:28
The world is in an uproar over COVID-19. As Christians, we should view this pandemic through the lens of faith and not fear. I honestly believe this viral fear may be worse than the coronavirus itself. I believe that as saints we are indestructible until God says, “I’m ready to call you home to receive your just reward.” So, no matter what pestilences and diseases are on the horizon let’s not panic. Yes, we should take precautionary measures, use wisdom and practice good hygiene (as we should’ve been doing long before this virus).
We live in a fallen world and, in my opinion, this is a foretaste of what this world will be like after the rapture takes place: pandemonium, chaos and terror.
This disease has killed more than 4,700 people around the world, with new cases reported each week. This is absolutely heartbreaking and I’m praying for all of those affected by this. I’m also praying that people will realize their mortality and let this be an awakening! Jesus is so soon to come and we’re reminded in Hebrews “The day you hear my voice harden not your heart.” If an unbeliever succumbs to this disease, we know they will spend eternity separated from God. For the unbeliever this is most scary.
If there was any time to make sure you were right with God, now is the time.
As Christians, whether we live or die our lives are in God’s hands. Eternity is long and life is short. If you haven’t committed your life to Christ, do so now! We never know when it will be our turn.
Let’s pray in faith that the coronavirus, as well as other threats and diseases will be eradicated for good.
If you’ve never trusted Jesus as your personal Savior and you’d like to, pray this prayer: “Lord Jesus, I confess my sins and ask for your forgiveness. Please come into my heart as my Lord and Savior. Take complete control of my life and help me to walk in Your footsteps daily by the power of the Holy Spirit. Thank you, Lord for saving me and for answering my prayer. In Jesus’ name. Amen.”
