This current pandemic has brought fear, suffering, and death to nearly every corner of the planet. The COVID-19 coronavirus has been a stark reminder of our mortality and frailty.
But even through various levels of quarantine and lockdown, a magnificent chorus arises from the Church, the Body of Christ. Millions of voices from diverse locations, cultures, and languages continue their declaration of this eternal and irrepressible hope: “He is risen!”
Death is defeated. The King is ALIVE!
He rolled the stone away, and in an instant, death was swallowed up in victory! “Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?” (1 Corinthians 15:55).
In the midst of uncertainty, sickness, and death, the best thing we can do is worship. We turn our eyes to Jesus, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
And He is still there TODAY. It’s real!
And ALL things are under His feet: sin, death, viruses... everything! “The LORD has established His throne in heaven, and His kingdom rules over all” (Psalm 103:19).
No sickness, quarantine, or fear can diminish His worth! Nor can they silence our worship!
No matter what you are facing, He remains the Resurrected King of Kings – and He is worthy of our praise!
If you ask me anything in my name, I will do it. - John 14:14
