Christ: The Anchor for the Soul
It has been months since the Corona Virus pandemic started to impact our lives. The news is ever changing and has the country in a panic. People are hurting, both financially and physically. This is a time of testing.
For the Christian, however, this is our call to stand firm in the faith and be found by others trusting in Jesus and not being tossed to and fro by every news update or breaking report. Regardless of the current situation, economic or health related, we have a God who is in control. We have a hope that can never fade. Nothing, nothing at all, can separate a Christian from the love of God.
“What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things? Who shall bring any charge against God's elect? It is God who justifies. Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died—more than that, who was raised—who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? As it is written,
“For your sake we are being killed all the day long; we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.”
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
-Paul to the Romans (8:31-39)
Now is the time to put faith into action, waking up each day thankful to God for what is to come and the life that we do have. Praising Him for every trial and blessing, worshipping Him through the struggles and devastating losses, living life worthy of the calling we have been given in Christ. Ephesians 4:1.
As Christians come together, loving one another in Spirit and truth, being joyful, hopeful and locking arms in the faith, non-believers will see and remember the power of God that was in us and working through us during this strange time. If there is any encouragement at all you can give to a brother or sister in Christ, let that be your worship today. We aren’t meant to walk this walk alone-so as we say “such a time as this”.
We are praying for the nation and for our leaders. We are also praying for those who are most impacted by the current state of affairs. If you have any prayer requests, please comment below, send us an email or message us on FB.
