Church and Coronavirus | Things You Should Know

It’s been a crazy couple of days, hasn’t it? Headline after headline about the coronavirus. Schools closing. Events being cancelled. The stock market plummeting. What’s a Christian supposed to make of all this? What’s a church supposed to do about all of this?

What God Says

There is a lot of information going around right now; some of it is accurate and some is not. Instead of refreshing your newsfeed every 30 seconds to hear what people say about the coronavirus, take a moment to be refreshed by what God says about it.

God is in control. Psalm 46:10 | “Be still, and know that I am God.”

God loves us and promises to help us. Isaiah 41:10 | “Do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.  I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”

God promises there will be trouble in the world, and he promises to be with us through it. Isaiah 43:1-3 | “Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze. For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior.”

God promises to use all things for our good. Romans 8:28 | “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”

God cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7 | “Cast all your anxiety on [God] because he cares for you.”

God wants to use us to reflect his love to others. Matthew 5:14,16 | “You are the light of the world… let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and praise their Father in heaven.”
