Week Of April 4, 2021

Page Views

A year ago we were just beginning to understand how widespread this virus-thingy was going to be.  We (at least “I”) never dreamed it would disrupt our lives for so long!  For some it’s brought great financial hardship, for others the worst of it has been total isolation and the stress that this can produce.  We were never intended to be isolated from each other, and for Christians that has never been truer than right now;  1 Timothy 6:6-8 ~

23 Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful. 24 And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, 25 not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.1

And yet, we’re being told to continue to isolate, to keep our distance.  As Christians, how on earth do we respond to this?  For some, there’s a very real health risk, even the risk of their lives.  For others it’s nothing more than a plot to take away our rights.  What’s the Christian stance?

There are biblical principles to consider, and there are financial considerations, and political agendas to think about.  I suppose, at the end of the day, I’d say you bring this, just as with everything else, before the Lord in prayer.  Ask for wisdom, and then cautiously proceed.  God promises to provide all that we need… if we will simply ask in faith.  That’s not necessarily what we want, it’s what we need for growth in godliness.
