Facing our greatest fears - what coronavirus could do?

May I ask you a few questions:
  1. Are you worried about the past?
  2. Are you fearful about the future?
  3. Are you not happy about the present?
Every list of people’s top worries has certain common items - money problems, health, getting old, relationships and death. It would be good not to worry but most of us do even if it’s only occasionally. 

At this moment in our nation, many people are worried. They fear the unknown! They are not sure what is going on? Who should they believe? How serious is this crisis?

The truth is - it is very serious and the potential for widespread disaster and indeed, death, is immense.

So please read and think about what I have to say today - you may regret not doing so one day.

Christians believe the Bible teaches why we are on this planet, why things go wrong and what’s important in life. The Bible teaches that the solution (salvation) is found in a person, the Lord Jesus Christ. One of the key summary statements from the Bible says this - ‘This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptance that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners . . .’, 1 Timothy chapter 1 verse 15.

We believe that the message of the Bible is vital and demands your attention. Everything else will only affect the ‘here and now’ but the gospel of Jesus Christ will also impact your ‘forever’. Listen to this promise found in John’s Gospel chapter 3 verse 16 ‘For God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten Son that whosoever believes in him should not perish but have everlasting life’. I know that by now many of you may be tempted to discard what I say but give me a minute of your time. 

This is a great opportunity for you to discover the answers to the questions you ask yourself. There are answers, life is not meaningless, God created you for a purpose, BUT

We need a change in life!

We need past sins forgiven!

We need our future safety to be guaranteed!

I am not being melodramatic but we are all in danger. More of us are in danger of God’s judgment (punishment) for our wrongdoing than are in danger of COVID-19. It applies to all of us for ‘we have all sinned and come short of the glory of God’, (Romans 3.23, the Bible). What we have done might be different but none of us is perfect.

We know that the answer that is provided in the Bible works which is why we want to share it with you. 

Thanks for reading this post.
