We will be lifting every request to God and responding to every need as we are able.
This an unprecedented time in history and we must act with prudence, wisdom, and love. Nothing like this has been seen in our lifetime, except by those who lived during the influenza pandemic in 1918, where the virus infected one in every three people on the planet and killed over 50 million people (surpassing the death toll of World War 1). History also witnessed the horrible outbreak of the bubonic plague (referred to as Black Death) that killed over 100 million in Europe and Asia between 1347–1352. More than half of Europe's population was wiped out.
We must realize that we are vulnerable people. We cannot live as if we were in charge of our own lives. We were created by God to live in loving submission to Him. We are not in control and these times are highlighting boldly our inability to help ourselves. We can't raise our fist against heaven and claim our independence from God. We need Him right now. He is the only one who can help us! We must humbly declare, "God help us! Have mercy on us. Forgive us for our sins and remove this plague from our land."
Let's continue to pray for each other. Let's use this time to upgrade our relationship with God and the members in our family. This is hard work but is worth it. We will have more time together and we must maximize it and grow in character like never before. Let's remember the admonition received from God's word during this past Sunday's message, to 1) Do Away With Fake Love 2) Thrive in Honoring Each Other 3) Have a Spiritual Awakening 4) Form New Habits (rejoice in hope, remain patient in tribulation, and constant in prayer) and 5) Become a Good Neighbor.
May God bless you and keep you. May God establish you in His truth and ground you in His love through His word and the comfort of His Spirit.
