WE SHOULD BE LIGHT DURING THESE
Christians are to be characterized by peace in the face of anxious
circumstances. Is 26:3-4, ‘You will keep in perfect peace those whose
minds are steadfast, because they trust in you. Trust in the Lord
forever, for the Lord, the Lord himself, is the Rock eternal.’
We believe that the Lord is King over all the forces of nature. Psalm
29 tells us that the Lord sends forth his voice (as he did in the
beginning at Creation) and nature obeys. Verse 10 says he sits
enthroned over the flood; the Lord sits enthroned as king forever. The
word for flood is the word used of the great flood in Noah’s day....
The waters of the flood are often a symbol in Scripture for evil — but
they are not outside of the Lord’s will. Viruses, no less than the waters,
are subject to his mighty will. As R. C. Sproul used to say, there cannot
be a single maverick molecule anywhere in the universe that is outside
of God’s sovereignty.
Every outbreak of pestilence, whether a localized epidemic or a global
plague, should remind us of the Lord’s words, and force the question
upon us, ‘Am I ready for Christ’s return? Have I bowed the knee to
Jesus as Lord? Am I living the faithful, godly life he has called me to?
Will I be put to shame at his appearing?’ The coronavirus should
impress upon us afresh that this world is passing away, that history is
not going around in circles but heading towards a great and terrible
Day of judgment. It should drive us to pray and to witness to the lost
around us with greater urgency.
Blessings to you all,
