The Daily News

Dear Editor:

We are hearing a lot of opinions and solutions to COVID-19 and the crisis facing America. But are we hearing the truth from God’s Word? God has stopped us in our tracks. Life is not going on as usual. Does God have our attention yet? Will we listen to what He has to say?

The answer is to repent and turn back to God. We have rejected God’s way to go our own way. And God is calling us to humble ourselves before Him. God is calling us to turn from our wicked ways. Proverbs 14:34 is clear. “Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.” The greatest need before us is not finding a cure for the virus. The greatest need is not saving the economy. The greatest need facing our nation is the call to repent and to turn from our sin. The greatest need is for holiness and righteousness as we seek the Lord and His way once again. Will we humble ourselves under God’s mighty hand? God is in charge, not us.

God is speaking. Are we listening? If we find a vaccine for COVID-19 but never repent and turn from our sin and back to God, then we have missed what matters. We will be destroyed by our sin. Let’s hear the warning. Joel 3:8 says, “The lion hath roared, who will not fear? The Lord God hath spoken, who can but prophesy?”
