“I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. ” – Philipians 3:14
Paul writes here that he is in a race. Like most of you know, I am passionate to spread the Gospel to as many people as possible. Since the COVID-19 is spreading rapidly across our world and due to precautions and restrictions, we have lost ten teams coming to spread the Gospel in our region. All our projects to engage with the people are cancelled or changed overnight. It looks like COVID-19 is ahead. I will not give up the race.
Asking the Lord what to do next, He focused me on the new ministry called “Ministry in a Digital Era.” Everyday I want more people to receive Christ than to die without Him because of COVID-19. Who will win this race? COVID-19 has its supporters: scared people, confused people making decisions based on earthly mentalities, and people with no hope or godly perspective. But we have our supporters, too: people who are praying and spreading the gospel daily, people bringing the hope of Christ, and people united in this time of crisis.
I experience what Paul must have been feeling in 1 Corinthians 4:9, “For it seems to me that God has put us apostles on display at the end of the procession, like those condemned to die in the arena. We have been made a spectacle to the whole universe, to angels as well as to human beings.” I am on display. We are on display. Dear partners, I can promise you that as long as I have breath in my lungs, I will not stop preaching Christ and offering Christ to people even in these days of crisis.
