For you, brethren, have been called to liberty; only do not use liberty as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. Galatians 5:13
When the coronavirus struck China earlier this year, millions of people fled or were quarantined, as fear spread across China to the world. One group of people, however, had a different response. Christians in the city of Wuhan—the virus’ epicenter—went into the streets distributing face masks, passing out Gospel brochures, and sharing the message of Jesus. One pastor said, “It is readily apparent that we are facing a test of our faith. The situation is so critical, yet [we are] trusting in the Lord’s promises, that his thoughts toward us are of peace, and not evil, and that he allows for a time of testing, not to destroy us, but to establish us.”
Christians find joy through serving and helping others. Even in trying times, we can encourage and assist others—especially those who are sick or alone. If you can’t leave your home, you can still reach out with a card, an email, a phone call, and through prayer. It is our joy as followers of Jesus Christ to minister to others in His Name. He brought joy to the world!
You have not lived today until you have done something for someone who can never repay you. John Bunyan
