6 So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, 7 rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.(Colossians 2:6-7)
As followers of Christ, ‘rooted in Him’, we have to consider how to best respond to the coronavirus (COVID-19). It’s a difficult thing for many of us. Whilst we’re all struggling to stay positive at times, it’s important to remember that this will hopefully be over soon. Governments are working hard to figure out the best ways to keep the public safe, whilst they provide government contracts to those experienced enough to find a vaccine for this virus.
Everyone is praying that this will soon be over, but it is important to note that coronavirus might affect you, your loved one or family in some way. For some people, it might leave them unable to work and although this is one of the more extreme outcomes it important that you know what your options are after this. Having something like this short term disability insurance individual cover can help you so that you don’t have to worry about a loss of income, particularly if COVID-19 affects you for a long time. But this is just an extreme case, and hopefully, you won’t have to worry about this.
Besides, governments have been assigning contracts to many companies who can hopefully help us to live normally again. These companies can normally bid for the contracts and, with the help of a government contracts law firm, they can begin conducting research to help them develop the best treatments for the public. So, whilst we all wait for a vaccine, there are things we can do to occupy ourselves.
Here are several questions to ask ourselves during this season: Read more
- GREATNESS OF GOD – HIS INFINITENESS & PRESENCE EVERYWHERE…
- Psalm 139:7-12 – “Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast. If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me,” even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to you.”
“Here, There and Everywhere” is a song by the English rock band the Beatles from their 1966 album Revolver. But we also use this phrase to describe a person’s frequent movement…a person who happens to be in most of the places for different occasions. However, a person may be very free with his movement and participation but he can only be at ONE LOCATION OR PLACE AT A TIME!
But this is not so with ‘OUR AWESOME GOD’. The Bible teaches us that GOD IS PRESENT EVERYWHERE AND HE IS NOT LIMITED BY SPACE AND TIME. The words that are used to describe this attribute of God is: God is Infinite and Omnipresent. We learnt last Sunday that God Is Spirit…Therefore, He is not constrained by time and place. He is in Kolkata as much as He is in Japan, Russia, Germany, Canada, & USA at the same time. Read more
What’s in a Name?
What is God’s Name? Does God have a name?
Exo 3:1-5 – 1Now Moses was tending the flock of Jethro his father-in-law, the priest of Midian, and he led the flock to the far side of the wilderness and came to Horeb, the mountain of God. 2There the angel of the Lord appeared to him in flames of fire from within a bush. Moses saw that though the bush was on fire it did not burn up. 3So Moses thought, “I will go over and see this strange sight—why the bush does not burn up.” 4When the Lord saw that he had gone over to look, God called to him from within the bush, “Moses! Moses!” And Moses said, “Here I am.” 5“Do not come any closer,” God said. “Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy ground.”
Exo 3:13-15 – 13Moses said to God, “Suppose I go to the Israelites and say to them, ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you,’ and they ask me, ‘What is his name?’ Then what shall I tell them?” 14God said to Moses, “I am who I am. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: ‘I am has sent me to you.’” 15God also said to Moses, “Say to the Israelites, ‘The Lord, the God of your fathers—the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob—has sent me to you.’ “This is my name forever, the name you shall call me from generation to generation.
