Last week’s message – Coronavirus: What is a Christian to Do… for myself?
How do I help others?
a. Walk with God
Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths. Proverbs 3:5-6
If God is for us, who is against us? Romans 8:31
b. Run to and not from
“When a train goes through a tunnel and it gets dark, you don’t throw away the ticket and jump off. You sit still and trust the engineer.”Corrie Ten Boom
It is the LORD your God you must follow, and him you must revere. Keep his commands and obey him; serve him and hold fast to him. Deuteronomy 13:4
c. Show hospitality
Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by this some have entertained angels without knowing it. Hebrews 13:2
‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ Matthew 22:39
“I actually believe that if everyone of us asked God what we should do in this area, everyone in our church family would actually be covered with the gift of hospitality.”
d. Be intentional
“Why would a God of love allow this virus to kill so many people?” “How could you trust a God that would allow this?”
The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance. 2 Peter 3:9
“For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost.” Luke 19:10
I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone, for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth. 1 Timothy 2:1-4
This week you have 5 areas of service to consider and pray over, and then, walk with God and He will tell you exactly what He wants you to do!
“While the fire is hot, keep conversing with the Refiner.” F. B. Meyer
