Our present circumstances are hard to truly comprehend. COVID -19 touches every continent; every nation and billions of people are in lockdown. In unprecedented times, with unprecedented needs, what does the Lord require from us?
We're meeting as church online during the period of Covid-19 nationwide lockdown. In today's message, John urges us to use our time wisely in lockdown. He encourages us to read Psalms and Proverbs, so that we can find comfort in God and grow in godly wisdom.
Today is the last Sunday for the Redemptive family devotional series. Our Redemptive Family series has encouraged and challenged us. We have been given this time and this opportunity to understand the importance of the family. And many of us have realized that we need the assistance of all our church members; different age groups and cultural groups in Christ. As our family of God, I believe that our purpose here is to build a good and godly church today. The question is what we can do better to serve God’s purpose?
