How should we respond spiritually to COVID-19?
We want to take the impact of this pandemic on our world seriously. We want to be wise by implementing the recommendations of our local, state, and national health organizations. We know that we live in a fallen and broken world that is daily impacted by sickness and death, but we have hope because of Jesus. Jesus died for our sins, was buried, and God raised Him from the dead. When we repent and believe in Jesus, we receive the gift of eternal life. It is our hope in eternal life that helps us deal with this world’s problems, issues, and concerns. We want to be busy during these days of uncertainty loving our neighbors and looking for opportunities to turn coronavirus conversations into gospel conversations.
