Pastor's message about Covid 19

Blessings to all in this most critical time of our lives. COVID19 virus is serious. I plead with everyone to listen to the CDC, City officials and your personal physician regarding coronavirus prevention. I truly believe God allows many things to happen to get our attention. When I see and hear of all the ungodly behaviors that are now so acceptable to the world, I can only wonder what'’s God'’s plans. This brings me to the best plan recommended during this crisis:

  1. Pray, Pray, Pray- listen to your pastor and spiritual leaders.

  2. Read your bible and meditate on scriptures through the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

  3. Practice all medical and health preventive measures.

  4. Follow the advice of national and local officials, medical and trusted news experts. 

  5. Think and respect the lives of others, especially your love ones, friends, co-workers, etc.(wear a mask, practice social distancing, and always wash your hands)

 

       Since many religious institutes and organizations are heeding local operating advisement and are operating accordingly in various forms of worship, please continue active worship as permissible. Keep in mind, God is really looking at the church in your heart, not the church you attend.  King David said (Psalm 19:14) “May these words of my mouth and this mediation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.”

 

In closing, I encourage everyone again to Pray, Pray, and Pray.  Jesus prayed in the Garden of Gethsemane (Matthew 26:36-45 ESV).

Then Jesus went with them to a place called Gethsemane, and he said to his disciples, “Sit here, while I go over there and pray.” [37] And taking with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, he began to be sorrowful and troubled. [38] Then he said to them, “My soul is very sorrowful, even to death; remain here, and watch with me.” [39] And going a little farther he fell on his face and prayed, saying, “My Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as you will.” [40] And he came to the disciples and found them sleeping. And he said to Peter, “So, could you not watch with me one hour? [41] Watch and pray that you may not enter temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.” [42] Again, for the second time, he went away and prayed, “My Father, if this cannot pass unless I drink it, your will be done.” [43] And again he came and found them sleeping, for their eyes were heavy. [44] So, leaving them again, he went away and prayed for the third time, saying the same words again. [45] Then he came to the disciples and said to them, “Sleep and take your rest later. See, the hour is at hand, and the Son of Man is betrayed into the hands of sinners. 

This is truly a time for world-wide prayer.

Be Blessed and Safe
