We may need to stay home, but we are not alone!

We don’t have to go to church to meet with God! God doesn’t live at the church! We learn through the Bible that Jesus came as Emmanuel, God with us! Jesus went He went to sit at the right hand of the Father, sent the Holy Spirit who is our comforter and guide. The Holy Spirit is with us, right here and right now!

Are you having virtual meetings with everyone using some tech to visit like Zoom or Teams or Skype or WhatApp or FaceTime or some other type of Tech? Are you able to go to online Church through platforms like YouTube and Facebook live? Are you trying to stay connected, even if it is at a distance? Are you trying to be Jesus hands and feet for those who need it? Are you trying to speak the truth in love? Are you trying to share hope and faith through Your Words and experiences?

We need to stay connected, first to God as the branches to the vine and second to one another! Just as we are to first love God with all our hearts, mind, soul, and strength and then to love our neighbors as ourselves, we need to stay connected!

When you feel alone, where do you turn? Will you cry out to God? Will you turn to His Word to hear what He has to say about you and to you? Will you take hold of His promises? Will you allow the Holy Spirit to bring peace that surpasses all understanding into your life to guard your heart and mind? Will you take hold of what Jesus offers you which is power, love, and a sound mind rather than fear? Will you take hold of God’s plan for you which is to give you a hope and a future? Will you take hold of God’s love for you which was demonstrated through His sending of Jesus not to condemn the world but that through Jesus the world can be saved!

Why not be a part of a revival during these times? Why spread the good news? Why not speak life in love to those you come into contact with? Why not be salt and light in this world that to many is feeling darker than ever?

If someone comes to mind today, will you reach out and check in on them?

We may need to stay home, but we are not alone! Let’s be the church and let’s be God’s hands and arms extended out into our communities!

Today’s reading from God’s Word – the Bible comes to us from:

My Notes:

As day 134 of 2020 begins, I would hate to miss giving the opportunity to anyone who hasn’t received Jesus into their lives as their Lord and Savior an opportunity to make the decision this early into 2020 and the blessing to get to live out the rest of 2020 in that power and that truth and that hope.

If you would like to receive Jesus as your Lord and Savior, why not join me in this prayer?

Dear God, I know that I am a sinner and there is nothing that I can do to save myself. I confess my complete helplessness to forgive my own sin or to work my way to heaven. At this moment I trust Christ alone as the One who bore my sin when He died on the cross. I believe that He did all that will ever be necessary for me to stand in your holy presence. I thank you that Christ was raised from the dead as a guarantee of my own resurrection. As best as I can, I now transfer my trust to Him. I am grateful that He has promised to receive me despite my many sins and failures. Father, I take you at your word. I thank you that I can face death now that you are my Savior. Thank you for the assurance that you will walk with me through the deep valley. Thank you for hearing this prayer. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
