What I did not say earlier was this.
Today as we reflect on Corona Virus and the current lockdown, there is fear lurking just below the surface. This is understandable. There is real danger out there. We might pause to have compassion on those of our neighbours who do not have faith in Jesus Christ. Their world has just self-detonated.
But for the disciple of Jesus, we live in a different world. We have at least one foot in the Kingdom of God. We have the privilege of calling God "daddy". Like the child who is frightened of the dark, we know that daddy is there to comfort us.
Let me sign off by sharing a thought from Terry Waite.
Who was held hostage by ruthless Islamic militants.
Terry Waite, 1763 days as a hostage in appalling conditions.
He just told us all to stop complaining! 👏👏👏
Change your mindset he said, you're not STUCK at home,
you're SAFE at home ❤️ #TerryWaite
