“So you have everything when you have Christ, and you are filled with God through your union with Christ. He is the highest Ruler, with authority over every other power”. Colossians 2:18
The world is going through a terrible pandemic, one that is affecting both the rich and the poor. With all the money in the world, a vaccine has not been developed to either cure or keep the virus – COVID-19 in check.
The virus does not discriminate, it affects both the rich and the poor, male and female, old and young. The amount of money, success or protection we might have surrounded ourselves with will not has not been able to protect us or save us from the virus. We simply do the best we can and hope for the best.
That being said, there is one thing we can do which is to ensure that we have someone with us who will make the difference to our lives during this pandemic. It will make the difference to how we react to it, how we keep fear at bay and how we use this time wisely.
Colossians 2:10 says “when we have Jesus we have everything”. It also says states that “Jesus is the highest Ruler, with authority over every other power”.
I believe that more than ever before, we need the presence of Jesus in our lives. His presence during this world crises will surely help us through. The presence of Jesus gives us access to hidden treasures of wisdom and knowledge and Hope; some of the things we need to not only keep our heads water, but to also keep a sane and worry free mind.
The presence of Jesus in our lives during this pandemic will make a great difference
The times we are in can be a frightening one, jobs being lost, communities collapsing, losing family and loved ones, the news of all the riots and unrest around the world – and that is a short list! However the presence of Jesus will help us navigate our minds, thoughts and actions through this time; He will be our favour, our strength, our wellbeing, our companion, our peace, our protection and our hope for a better today and tomorrow.
The presence of Jesus is that one thing that will and can make the difference in our lives. When we have Jesus He becomes everything we need Him to be for us including protection during this pandemic.
So be encouraged, if you have Jesus, you are blessed and have everything you need to help you through this season. Keep nurturing that relationship with Him and keep the fire within your heart alight for Him.
