CORONAVIRUS

Revd Martijn Mugge

Every time I switch on the radio it feels like tuning in to one of those apocalyptic movies. However this time there are no clear heroes or guarantees of a ‘happily ever after’. Nevertheless there are things we can do now to ready ourselves for worse to come.

 

The first is obvious: follow government advice.

Washing your hands regularly and avoiding touching your face are still the best ways to avoid catching the virus. Staying indoors if you have a cough or flew symptoms, or if you are elderly or particularly vulnerable, will further limit the spread and may already be compulsory. If you are young and well, then perhaps this is an area where you can help. Are there people you could call to check they are okay, or to see whether they need any shopping? As a Church we are seeking to provide a coordinated response, so please get in touch if you are able to offer your help and support.

 

My second advice: pray.

Whatever your situation, God loves you and cares about you, so let Him know how you feel and what’s on your mind; He will nourish and sustain you. And pray for healthcare workers, the vulnerable and those who are financially insecure or worried about having to take time off.  

 

My third and last advice may come as a surprise: make peace with God.

Sadly there is yet no cure for Covid-19 and undoubtedly many will die. But there is a cure for death itself. You and I were made by God to be loved by God and to live forever. One day you will face God’s judgement against everything that has been wrong in your life. But forgiveness is available through Jesus Christ, who died for your wrongs so that you might receive eternal life. The Bible says: “Humble yourselves before the Lord and He will lift you up.” It is never too late to seek God’s forgiveness, until it is too late. Respond now, make peace with God and ring me on 01709 259531. I’d love to hear from you.
