A WITNESSING OPPORTUNITY

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MARCH 25, 2020

         THE CORONAVIRUS NOW SWEEPING THE WORLD REMINDS ME OF BIBLICAL PLAGUES OF OLD. I AM NOT A THEOLOGIAN AND SO CANNOT SAY IF THIS PLAGUE WAS SENT BY GOD TO PUNISH US FOR OUR PRESUMPTUOUS SINS, OR IF IT IS SIMPLY A CONSEQUENCE OF LIVING IN A FALLEN WORLD.

         IT DOES GIVE US AN OPPORTUNITY TO CONSIDER DEATH, SOMETHING EVERYONE ON EARTH WILL EXPERIENCE, ONE WAY OR ANOTHER. AS THE SCRIPTURES SAY “IT IS APPOINTED UNTO MAN ONCE TO DIE AND AFTER THAT THE JUDGMENT.”

         FOR BELIEVERS IN AND FOLLOWERS OF JESUS, WE HAVE NOTHING TO FEAR. YES, WE SHOULD PRAY AS MOSES DID THAT THE PLAGUE WILL BE REMOVED FROM US, BUT OF GREATER IMPORTANCE IS WHERE WE AND OTHERS ARE HEADED. THIS IS A WINTESSING OPPORTUNITY TO SHARE JESUS AND HIS SALVATION WITH UNBELIEVING FRIENDS. THEY ARE OPEN NOW.

         MARTHA WILLLIAMSON, THE EXECUTIVE PRODUCER OF “TOUCHED BY AN ANGEL,” WROTE: “DEATH IS NOTHING TO FEAR, BUT IT IS SOMETHING TO PREPARE FOR.” ARE YOU AND ESPECIALLY UNBELIEVING FRIENDS PREPARED? I’M CAL THOMAS.
