Genesis 15:1 After this, the word of the LORD came to Abram in a vision: “Do not be afraid, Abram. I am your shield, your very great reward.”
Abram came from a great victory over four kings who had taken everything from the five cities of the plain. He rescued the people and their stuff. He did not take a reward for it but gave all the glory to God. But there were some possible fears that he had. He could have feared the revenge of those kings and also the envy and jealousy of his neighbors. But God told him not to fear. He was Abram’s shield and would protect Abram from all danger. He was Abram’s great reward. He promised He would bless Abram.
Just like Abram, a Christian has nothing to fear. God will shield us from dangers, including the coronavirus. Even if we get it, God can still heal us. And even if we die, we will go to heaven.
The person who has to fear is the unbeliever. He has no shield and no great reward. If they die, they will go to hell. I do not want this to happen to them. The greater danger comes after death because we are all infected with sin. The Christian’s sin is nailed to the cross, but the unbeliever still has sin infecting him or her everyday. So I say to those who do not know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, confesses your sins and believe on Jesus who can save you and protect you. “If you believe in your heart and confess with your mouth, that Jesus Christ is Lord, you will be saved.” (Romans 10:9) Then you have nothing to worry about. Please do this today.
