Pandemic, Meet The Resurrection
He is risen. That is the Christian confession. We worship the triune God. We do so in Spirit and in truth. We do so in resurrection hope. For our God and Father “make[s] springs gush forth in the valleys; they flow between the hills; they give drink to every beast of the field; the wild donkeys quench their thirst. Beside them the birds of the heavens dwell; they sing among the branches. From [the Almighty’s] lofty abode [He] water[s] the mountains; the earth is satisfied with the fruit of [His] work” (Psalm 104:10-13).
Christians are people of the resurrection. And our resurrection lifestyle shines all the more brightly when everyone around us fears pandemic, tyranny, and death. Why don’t we fear? Because our Father feeds cedar trees with rivers. He gives blue jays a place to nest. He molds the high mountains for the wild goats. He makes the dark so the mice can creep about the forest floor. And He gives resurrection for us, His children.
