As corona virus seems to be spreading and people fall into either a “stop over reacting” or “PANIC” camp, I am finding it harder to explain my faith.
Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we cannot see.Hebrews 11 v 1
A lot of people argue with “If God exists, why does he let this happen?”.
But what is actually happening? Not even 2% of the UK population have been infected yet. We are running on FEAR! We are letting in fear and giving it control.
I am not playing this down as I am in an “at risk” category, if I were to catch this.
However it seems that fear has the foothold in most people’s lives and not hope.
So going back to my original thought. How do I explain my God and my Jesus, who are loving and merciful to everyone who can only see fear.
Faith to me is hope. It is hope in something I can’t see. Just like the actual virus! I can’t see it or fully explain it . However I am certain both exist, even though I may not be able to prove it to you.
My hope and faith is that I am certain God will rise up in this pandemic, with stories of miracles, and love will trample over all this fear. That an antidote will be found and sanity will resume.
Although I know not everyone agrees with me. It is a fact that Jesus walked and died on this earth. If you believe he did this for you. If you believe he conquered death and fear for you – you really can live in freedom and hope, while everyone around you can seem insane.
Just let Jesus in – pray and accept Jesus as Lord, relinquishing all your wrong doings.
LIVE IN FREEDOM NOT FEAR.
