How Christians Should Respond to COVID-19

As I sit here this morning, I'm contemplating the fact that we're in a state of emergency where only essential services are open due to COVID-19. Originally this was only going to last for two weeks. Now it's March 19 and they're saying "maybe" April 3. Unfortunately, nobody knows for sure when or how this will end.

The world seems to have gone crazy in a hurry but honestly this is a long time coming. There's been a lot of areas in which we've all strayed away from God. Things like abortion, the adult industry, psychics, horoscopes, and these are only the things coming to the top of my mind at the moment. We're crazy to think that God would let the sinfulness of this world go unpunished.

Am I saying that God Himself has authored this virus? No! By no means. However, I think that with how smart and self sufficient we all thought we were it was bound to happen. Sins aren't going to go unpunished, ultimately our loving Father must correct us, His children whom He loves. Unfortunately, it took something this serious to drive us all down onto our knees.

Where will we go from here? What will happen? I don't know. Truly only God knows but I truly believe it's time for America to wake up. It's time for us to get down on our knees, humble ourselves and beg for His forgiveness. It's time to get right with God and start living for Him.
