We’re In This Together!
None of us could have predicted the events going on all around us and in our own lives, but GOD was not caught unprepared! Many people have been repeating the title of our sermon series over the past week or more: “We’re in this together!” That’s true for the entire human race, as everyone is affected in one way or another. But it is particularly true for God’s people, for those who are part of Christ’s Body. God has made preparations not only for this crisis, but also for all those yet to come! What has God done to prepare you and the world for what lies ahead: He has built the largest infrastructure known to man … the Church!! There are government organizations and other organizations that can and do reach out to help others in times like this, but no other group of people can do what the true Church can do … what those who know Christ can do. Within the Body of Christ there is a “built-in” network of love and caring that exists nowhere else. It is here that brothers and sisters in Christ minister to one another, care for one another, love one another, encourage one another. God provides for His people through His people! As we serve one another and reach out to others, sharing the good news of the Gospel, God receives glory and we are assured that we are not alone. What an opportunity we have to shine as lights in the darkness as we work together for the glory of our God!!
