Since March many of us have been prisoners in our own homes due to information that we thought we could trust from the “experts”. In my opinion it has become apparent that they were very wrong and that in fact COVID-19 was no worse on the population than the flu.
I will agree that we need to protect the old and very young when it comes to this virus, but those of us who are of good overall health need to get back to what we know is right; working hard to support our families and those who support us by providing the produce we depend on each and every day.
After reading a post by Marcus Pittman on FB I am of the same position ( https://www.facebook.com/marcuspittman/posts/10106117309026028 ); as a “Church” we must start having services again to set the example for the rest of the nation to follow. Our fear does not reside in the virus we have been told to fear, it lies in the hands of the one and true God who is over everything, thus we should have no fear to go forward with God who provides our armor and is the tip of our spear.
We can be wise in how we congregate by keeping safe distances, not shaking hands, wearing masks, etc. Either way we are there to worship God regardless of what we wear, how far we sit from others or if we don’t shake hands.
Let’s shake the fear off and go forward as the Christian Soldiers we know we are! I will stand next to any Christian as we go into the fray together to fight the good fight for God’s Kingdom; His will and not ours is our marching order!
Until that day we will continue to pray for those in the medical fields or any other job that puts them up close to the virus as it stands today. We also pray that our elected leaders do not abuse their office, but handle each situation with wisdom and clarity, rather than with panic or emotional choices.
May you find Jesus as your peace and strength during this challenging time. With that strength I would ask you to stand with your Christian brothers and sisters as we march on for God’s glory.
There is victory in this and it will be we believers who show others how to find it!
The Koifish Christian
