3. The Faith in Your Heart Can Also Carry Others
Always be prepared to share why you have hope (1 Peter 3:15), even when facing the deadly coronavirus. We are but a vapor in time (James 4:14), and eternity is (at least right now) beyond our understanding.
And yet that kind of ‘nonsensical’ perspective is available to you right now, when you reject the threats that Satan uses to silence your joy. You have access, through Christ, to a peace that surpasses understanding (Philippians 4:7) if you activate your will and choose it.
Even if holding on to your faith is preceded by crying out your panic to release it to God, you can then count on a peace that’s powerful enough to carry you—and others—through another day. Or another hour.
Remember the loaves and fish while coronavirus wreaks its havoc, and trust that God supplies your needs in abundance. And while you protect others by keeping your physical distance, you can still uphold others with the love of Christ within you.
You have a heart that asks God’s will to direct your choices...to guide you to donate, to rein in your spending, to learn new ways of budgeting or planning to protect your loved ones, to look for the needs of others, to care for the person next door.
Or if your situation seems dire and all you can do is sit near someone who coronavirus is having their way with, you can let the peace of Christ rule in your heart.
