The church does not take vacations.
The church never waits.
The church is who we are. It never closes.
Living in this time of social distancing and quarantine has not been easy for many.
Many have recalled from studies, jobs, social gatherings, and even the structures we call churches are closed but the church does not stop. We are not on hiatus hoping that we can work in a structured way.
But do those who served as leaders and pastors and teachers continue with their ministries? The answer is: Of course yes!
Your where they are with you, your brothers in faith continue to need support, love, empathy, and ministry.
You may not be able to teach in a classroom but you can in a virtual one.
You may not be able to invite others to church evangelistic activities, but you can invite them to a live on Facebook.
We can still reach out to whoever needs it and offer our help, even over the phone.
More efficient still is the one that you share your testimony of how you have found in God’s strength and peace in the midst of all the circumstances that we have lived.
It is time to tell others not to wait any longer, that arriving on time at the feet of the Master, of the Son of God is the best thing that can happen to us.
Today I was listening to a song that reminded me of the time I was apart from the Lord and although it was a very bad decision to walk away, and I found many thorns and wounds on the way, He waited for me and hugged me, cleaned me and now every day I wake up giving thanks to who gave everything for me.
I don’t want to go back because what I have now is so powerful that it is everything. Living for Christ is without comparison. I want others to experience that blessing every day. I want them to meet, not with a temple, with Christ.
The fields are ready for harvest. The need is great, every day more. We have the solution to be able to live in blessing even in times of crisis, why not share it?
We may not know how, but in practice and teaching through the Holy Spirit, we can work for the glory of God.
It is still time to work.
Let us pray to the Lord giving thanks for such an undeserved gift that we have received, the eternal visa. Let us come to Him in humility to use us as instruments of messengers of the gospel.
