Waves and the Virus: Which is Greater? (Rev 1:15)

Perhaps more than any other book in the Bible, Revelation gives us a glimpse of the majesty and grandeur of Jesus. In these days of global fear of a microscopic organism, we need reminders that God is bigger than a virus. Passages like Revelation 1 (and Isaiah 6) provide those reminders.

“Pray then like this” (Matt 6:9)

In the midst of a world-wide pandemic, do you find it easier or harder to pray? I suspect “easier” in the sense that fear pushes us to pray more often and more fervently. I also suspect “harder” in light of the mounting number of deaths and the minor discomfort of self-quarantine.

Dr. John Coe, reminds us in this episode of "Curious Christian" that no amount of effort can ever relieve us of this burden of shame and guilt, except Christ.

Is God All Good All the Time? (Romans 8:28–30)

Sometimes the pain in our lives is so intense that we can barely breathe. It doesn't feel like we deserve the pain (and perhaps we don't), and it is unjust for God to allow us to walk through the darkness. One of the worst things that someone can say at that time is to quote Romans 8:28, so before those times come we need to decide whether or not God is all good all the time, and whether or not he works in all things for good.
