There’s a lot in the news about testing for coronavirus. This is my third in a series of other “coronavirus tests” – for Christians.
I John 4
7 Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.
8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.
I John 4
21 And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also.
Because of this horrible disease, many of us have been kept from meeting together and seeing one another. Have we been in touch with our brothers and sisters? Do we know they are ok? Have we even thought about the fact that we might never see them again on this earth? Is there anything at all in our actions that would make anyone think we really love them?
Do we miss them? Are we spending time with them by phone or Internet when we are able? Are we praying for them, asking God to protect them from the many ways the adversary will try to destroy them in this time?
Or are we just drifting apart, doing our own thing, or are we reaching out? Is our Lord happy with our answers to these questions, or have we failed this “coronavirus” test?
If there’s a problem, start fixing it today, because yes, there’s another test tomorrow!
