God’s Purpose for Our Generation

Acts 13:36 says “For David, after he had served the purpose of God in his own generation, fell asleep and was laid with his fathers and saw corruption,” There is the purpose of God for every generation.  We are called to serve that purpose.  While that purpose involves many things, walking through this global pandemic makes some of those things become very clear. We are called to trust in God’s goodness rather than fear.  We are called to give up some of our privileges out of love for those around us. We are called to obey those in civil authority.

1 Peter 2:13-14 (ESV)

Be subject for the Lord’s sake to every human institution, whether it be to the emperor as supreme, or to governors as sent by him to punish those who do evil and to praise those who do good.

Developed by public health experts on the White House Coronavirus Task Force, these guidelines remain essential for containing the virus and protecting the most vulnerable among us:

  • Listen and follow all directionsfrom your state and local authorities.
  • Avoid social gatherings, especially those with more than 10 people.
  • Practice strict personal hygiene. Wash your hands and avoid touching your face. Sneeze or cough into a tissue or the inside of your elbow.
  • Use pickup or delivery options instead of eating at restaurants or bars.
  • Work from home if at all possible. Do not go to work if you feel sick.
  • If someone in your householdtests positive for Coronavirus, keep the entire family at home and contact your medical provider.

Philippians 2:14-15 (ESV)

Do all things without grumbling or disputing, that you may be blameless and innocent, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and twisted generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world…
