Believe in the Blood
It is not time to underplay the severity of the scourge of COVID-19. It is also not the time for conspiracy theories about how it started. This virus is as harmful as it's being reported. It plans to take no prisoners. It has made itself known, and the world is on notice.
People are afraid, and it’s evident in the empty store shelves everywhere. Schools are closing down. Libraries, recreation centres, pools, businesses and workplaces are closed on all the continents. Whole towns and regions have shut down in Italy and China.
Travellers are quarantined in Canada, Israel, and the US. Thousands of flights have been cancelled, planes grounded, and airports are empty. All of that is enough to make one afraid.
But have no fear.
As we go about our day, whether at work or home, let us remember the blood that was shed for our salvation and remission of sins. In the time of Moses, the blood of the sacrificial lamb was put on the sides and the tops of the door frames. It was called The Passover.
We are in the lenten season. Let us remember to partake with those in our household, the sacrament of our Lord Jesus. Along with washing our hands, keeping our distance from others, and cleansing our environment, may we remember the power in the blood.
It is good many of us have been asked to stay home because of COVID-19, like the Israelites during the time of Moses were asked to remain indoors. May we remember to read the Word during this time and fill our minds with higher thoughts—thoughts of life, love, peace, and goodwill to all.May we remember to read the Word during this time and fill our minds with higher thoughts—thoughts of life, love, peace, and goodwill to all.
