 CONSIDER

 

  • We are Called to be Good Citizens
    • Romans 13:1 - “Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God."
  • Quarantines Are God’s Idea
    • Leviticus 13:31-33 - “31 But if the priest examines the scaly sore, and indeed it does not appear deeper than the skin, and there is no black hair in it, then the priest shall isolate the one who has the scale seven days. 32 And on the seventh day the priest shall examine the sore; and indeed if the scale has not spread, and there is no yellow hair in it, and the scale does not appear deeper than the skin, 33 he shall shave himself, but the scale he shall not shave. And the priest shall isolate the one who has the scale another seven days.”
  • Jesus is On the Throne
    • He is not fretting or obsessing over this - And neither should we.
    • None of this has not caught Him by Surprise
  • Romans 8:28 is Always True - Be Open to God’s Purposes
    • Romans 8:28 - “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.”
  • Keep Focused on Jesus
    • Isaiah 26:3-4 - “3 You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you. 4 Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord God is an everlasting rock.”
