God is sovereign and certainly saw this disease before we did. I do not believe he sent it to punish the earth. He certainly is using it for His glory. How do we get active with Him?
He cares for the sick and dying. He cares for the down trodden. He cares for the sinner.
There are lots of those. Surely we need to care as we are able. See also God’s Kingdom is About Love.
How Does God Work in COVID-19? More Than Ever
Lots of people are afraid. That is understandable. Can we reach out in love to people who have fear and not to change them? Can we reach out to them in this time with God’s love and peace?
I am a recruiter. I see a lot of people have lost their jobs and few are hiring. Tough times indeed. What can we as individuals and groups do?
We all need God in these times. It could be a time when God can reach people who otherwise would not know him. He often does this. Can we join Him?
Charities have been hit hard just when needs are great. I am a board member for Restoration Harvest which helps unreached people groups in Southwest China. They use one hand to help the materially poor and one hand to help their spiritual poverty. Both are deeply needed and plentiful. I volunteer with them as did this kind of work 2000-2006 and know the founder is a servant leader of merit who needs support. Giving is down because of the virus. Welcome to sign up for quarterly newsletter or pitch $ to them. They will put it to good use.
COVID-19 is the first global pandemic in 100 years. May Christians around the world find ways to spread light in a difficult time. Understanding, compassion, and sympathy so needed at this hard time. Virtual support takes so much more thought but there must be big needs. God bless the poor in spirit. He surely plans to. Hope we all can join Him.
