What Christian Leaders Are Saying About COVID-19 Pandemic

COVID-19 is a new illness that can affect your lungs and airways. It is caused by a virus called coronavirus. Symptoms of this virus are coughing, high temperatures, and shortness of breath. Coronavirus has no specific treatment and how it spreads from person to person is still unknown. In less than a month, the coronavirus has shifted people’s lives throughout the entire world. According to Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), by March 28th, within the United States alone there has been nearly 2,000 deaths and over 30,000 globally! Many states are declaring to be in a state of emergency, social distancing is everywhere, and curfews are now being enforced. Fear and anxiety seem to be spreading as quickly as the virus.

Here is what some Faith Leaders are saying to encourage, uplift, and inspire:

God is still on the throne. This isn’t the first time the world has gone through a crisis. We’re going to get through this and we’re going to be better because of it.” – Max Lucado

In a time like now, Christian neighboring looks less like fearful self-preservation and more like servanthood toward the elderly, those with HIV, autoimmune disease, or no healthcare, fatigued and under-resourced healthcare workers, etc.

Wash hands, for sure.
Then, wash feet
.” – Scott Sauls

Our anxiety does not come from thinking about the future, but rather from wanting to control it. Anxiety doesn’t remove tomorrow’s suffering, it only removes today’s strength. Rest in who JESUS IS and give all fears and anxieties to him.” -Judah Smith

Why cancel church during a pandemic?

1. We are loving our neighbors by protecting our neighbors.

2. We are not being fearful. We are being responsible.

3. This is what love requires of us in this season.” – Andy Stanley

Coronavirus can bring Americans together.” – TD Jakes

  1. Undeniably consider that which you said. Your favourite reason seemed to be at the web the easiest factor to understand of.
    I say to you, I certainly get irked while people consider worries that they just don’t realize about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the highest and also defined out the entire thing without
    having side-effects , other people could take a signal.
    Will probably be again to get more. Thanks
