Pastor’s Desk: The spiritual side of the virus

Posted on Tuesday, April 28, 2020 at 1:52 pm

The virus is spreading all over the world and causing panic among many.

People are stocking up on food, water, and items in case of a lockdown or quarantine.  People are fearful of what the future holds, and the media is creating a very bleak outlook.  But very few people seem to be concerned about the spiritual virus that has infected the individual lives which leads to death.  This virus is called ‘sin.’

Pastor Eric Hill

People are trying to protect themselves by wearing mask & washing their hands which is good but what about the virus of sin which can be cured immediately.  Jesus can cleanse you from this virus of sin and you will have nothing to worry about and will have the promise of heaven being your home if you ask for forgiveness and turn your life over to Him. John 1:8-10 “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.  If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.  If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.”  The most important decision any individual can make is the choice of accepting Jesus into their life.  Turning from sin to Christ saves us from our sins, as God forgives us because His Son died for us.  God not only saves us but calls us to bless others, to be used of God in the world for Him.
