With the world on virus watch, we do not have to be totally or partially restricted. This could be our best time to get closer to God. And when this virus is over, we will find ourselves in better condition in spirit, soul and body.
Submit ourselves to God to be examined, cleansed and transformed. Confess our sins to God, pray / settle our broken relationships with our fellowmen.
Thank God for His righteousness, grace and mercy and for His Son and for the Holy Spirit.
Here am i almost 68 years old, retired and looking at life. Being retired i can schedule my mind at least for anything but here is what i find. What i did before is hard for me to do now. Not to brag but just to share facts . I finished engineering, went to US, worked for 30 years in electric generating station, had a family etc.
Now looking back i can not figure out how i did those. In my stage now, i do not think i can do those again. It seems finding Jesus is easier. To find Jesus all we need is ourself, our honesty,our failures and our needs.
Although finding Jesus is easy, there are things that make it hard. Our sinful nature or flesh as we call it stands in the way. But if we want to know who God is like ,we can find Him in Jesus.
There is void outside of Jesus while there is peace and contentment in Jesus.
Do you have Jesus ? If you want Him, He is just a prayer away. But here is the catch, you have to want Him for eternity.
Jesus came that we may have life while corona virus came to take our life. Jesus is for eternity, corona virus is temporary or for limited time.Jesus died for us that we may live while the virus would like to see us dead. The virus make us wear mask while Jesus remove our mask (sin).
To have Jesus we have to repent of our sins and accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior. That means we have to love Him with all our mind , our soul,our heart and with all our strength. To have the corona virus, we just have to be careless.
What do i mean by occasional sin ? It is a sin that says just this one, or no one will ever know or no harm will come to you if you do this sin just one time. Of course we know one sin will lead to another.
In case we give in , let us confess right away to God. Even not joining a prayer meeting because we think they are all the same. God has a way that our life becomes more miserable by giving us situation that waste our time.
Let us stay true and faithful to God, for in due season we shall reap our reward.
Like the prodigal son or the thief in the cross, it is not too late to turn to the Lord Jesus. If you sensed you wasted your life or opportunity or chased wrong goals in your life, God wants you and i or anybody to know that He is not willing that any will perish and that all will come to repentance.
But this window of opportunity may not be forever open but there will come a time that Jesus will return to earth visibly and some belief that Jesus will come to take His own first in an event called the Rapture.
Seek the Lord while He could be found. Once we have Him do not let go.
Key is a small item that we have to lock or unlock important item or structure such as home etc. Perhaps every one in this planet called earth had lost his or her precious key and experienced anxiety and frustration in trying to find it.
In this modern world through advances in technology we are able to afford and accumulate items but because they are so many we tend to lose some items specially our precious key.
I would like to talk to you about our most precious key. The key for our soul. The Bible says what shall it profit a man if he gain the whole world and loses his soul. What do i mean by the key for our soul ? For me the key for our soul is in the hands of Jesus Christ. I understand it is not always easy to explain spiritual matters but if you are interested you will ask God to reveal to you more about His precious Son Jesus Christ.
Once we are in Jesus i mean that He is truly our Lord and Savior there will be no more case of lost precious key because in Jesus is assurance and safety of our soul.
What does it take for the corona virus to disappear ?
Does anybody know ? People are asking God to take away the virus, but the virus appears to be alive and well. While we are waiting for God to eradicate the virus, could God be waiting for us to do something ?
You may ask what do we have to do ?
Forgive me if i mention this, i have a tooth ache that will not go away for the past three days now. You may say go to the dentist and he will take care of it. That sounds right. Meanwhile ......
Could there be some sin or sins in our lives that we need to confess and get rid of ?
