(2 Chronicles 7:13-14) 13 When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or command the locust to devour the land, or send pestilence among my people, 14 if my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.
“29 He gives power to the faint,
and to him who has no might he increases strength.
30 Even youths shall faint and be weary,
and young men shall fall exhausted;
31 but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings like eagles;
they shall run and not be weary;
they shall walk and not faint.”
OK team. Here is the latest plan for Sunday. We are planning to live stream a worship service from the church office. We will have some worship music, prayer and a message from Luke 12.
This will be followed by a food giveaway from Project Love and Mavis has already outlined some changes there. People will receive food at the door one at a time rather than everyone milling around inside.
Those who are going to serve and help make things happen are really the only people who need to be here. I do hope, however, we can all find a way to take part online.
It has been super encouraging to see people serving one another and making sure people are cared for with food and whatever they need. Do keep in touch with one another, pray for one another and make sure someone else is OK. And then, if you personally have a need, please make it known.
Times like these can be real faith builders for Christ’s people. We, more than anyone, are confident that the big story ends well. And for now let’s come to Jesus and encourage others to do the same.
“The Spirit and the Bride say, “Come.” And let the one who hears say, “Come.” And let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who desires take the water of life without price.” (Revelation 22:17)
