Has not our world changed in just a few short weeks?
That surely would be an understatement!
I am still amazed at how quickly the Corona Virus or Covid 19 as it is now referred to, has created such a change!
Besides the tragedy of the deaths it has caused and is still causing, in addition we have seen the closing of the majority of the world’s borders, massive unemployment, the frowning of the use of cash for payments, mass fear and anxiety, the implementation of police emergency rule, and world debt of cataclysmic proportions.
All within just a few weeks!
It also has laid the groundwork for future incredible political instability!
Sadly, yesterday we had the tragic deaths of four police officers in Victoria whilst carrying out a vehicle stop on a freeway.
What’s the connection?
These situations remind us that the foundations on which we place our trust, if not built on Jesus Christ, can be shaken or swept away in the blink of an eye.
My question to you is, what foundation does your life, your eternal destiny rest on?
Hebrews 12: When God spoke from Mount Sinai his voice shook the earth, but now he makes another promise: “Once again I will shake not only the earth but the heavens also.” 27 This means that all of creation will be shaken and removed, so that only unshakable things will remain.
28 Since we are receiving a Kingdom that is unshakable, let us be thankful and please God by worshiping him with holy fear and awe. 29 For our God is a devouring fire.
God, I believe has given the world a very early wake up call that life as we know it, will not just simply tumble on day after day.
My prayer is that we all will heed the “shake up” we are witnessing before our eyes.
I take the verse – “Today is the day of salvation” – 2 Corinthians 6:2 – literally and seriously.
It’s time to heed the signs and to turn our lives to our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
Jesus is coming soon……
