These are very trying times. There is an enemy out there at the microscopic level, wreaking all kinds of havoc in people’s hearts and lives. The economic consequences alone of the coronavirus could possibly be felt for years.

But at times like this, it is so great to know who we are in Christ. The Apostle Paul said, To me, to live is Christ and to die is gain. And so it is.

How can we have peace in the midst of this storm? By fixing our eyes on Jesus Christ. There’s a great saying that goes: Look to others, be distressed. Look to self, be depressed. Look to Jesus and be blessed.
