We are near to the greatest Christian holy day, Easter. It is sad that we are mandated to stay at home except for necessary trips. Nevertheless, Christ is risen! The salvation He purchased for us is still valid. The Corona virus cannot change that. We have God’s own promise that we who believe in Jesus are welcomed into God’s forever family. Even though we are separated from one another, we have reason to rejoice. Like Job, we are being tested. In the midst of his very severe trials, Job cried out, “Though He slay me, yet will I trust Him (Job 13:15)….The Lord gives, the Lord takes away. Blessed be the name of the Lord. In all this Job did not sin or charge God with wrong.” (Job 1:22). Please, do not charge God with wrong in this time of testing. He has a purpose in all that is happening. Trust Him. Hold fast to your faith in Jesus, and it will be well with your soul.
Remember rhe 24 hour prayer vigil on Good Friday. All slots have been taken, but if you haven’t signed up I encourage you to find a time to pray on Good Friday.
Marie and I will be at the church on Easter from 9 AM to noon to serve communion. Come individually and observe all the health precautions.
We will come together again. Until then, God be with you. May His grace, mercy and peace fill your heart and soul. Pastor Bowman
