I think God is testing the church. By that I mean He is strengthening us. He’s calling upon us to be the people He desires for His church to be.
You will remember that when Jesus fed that crowd of 5,000 men plus women and children, the gospel tells us that Jesus tested his followers by telling them to feed those people. They could have and they should have looked to him and said, “Lord, you can do this.” And so that’s the call of the church right now…to be the people who come to God and say, God we cannot solve this but you can.
Bless our leaders. Bless those in research. Bless those who are vulnerable, we ask you Lord. So let’s be that people, folks. Let’s be people who call out to God in asking for help. We’re gonna get through this. I’m not saying it’s going to be easy. I’m not saying it’s gonna be quick. But God will take this and He will use it for good.
