What? Joy and peace in the midst of the corona virus turmoil? How is that possible?
While we are under attack from all sides by the attempts of various factions to use this crisis for their own ends, it is important for people of faith to remember that worldly circumstances are temporary and do not change our relationship with God nor our responsibility to follow His Word. Just as with the experiences of Joseph recorded in Genesis 50, situations and plans meant for evil can be used for good.
Christians are the body of Christ, His physical hands and feet, and it is important dor each one of us to use this time to demonstrate His love and testify to the hope we have because of Him. Even though social separation and shelter in place guidelines may hinder our corporate celebrations of Resurrection Day this year, the reality of Christ’s death and resurrection remain.
How can we live as resurrection people during (and after) this pandemic upheaval? It may require some creativity to see and respond to the opportunities God puts before us, but it is in such a time as this when living witness has the greatest impact.
May the God of hope fill you with joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.Romans 15:13 ESV
