I Can Provide Support

______________________________________________

COVID-19 has had a significant impact on our everyday lives.  While there are many implications that we need to carefully navigate, we are aware of the unique opportunity to share the love of God through our lives and actions.  In this moment, we can represent Jesus by being:

  • Salt | preserving what is good
  • Light | sharing the hope and assurance found in Christ
  • Love | caring for our neighbours as we would ourselves  

It may be as simple as a smile to a worried face in the grocery store, as practical as picking up necessities for someone who can’t get out, or as loving as a personal phone call to check in on your neighbours or others you know who are isolated for various reasons. The possibilities are many!  

Every act, no matter how small, done in the name of Jesus is an action done towards him and will have profound impact (see Matthew 25:40).  

 

How can you love those around you?  

Think about your circles:

  • Physical (Neighbours, co-workers, day-to-day interactions)
  • Personal (Friends, family, social groups, children’s school friends and family, etc.)
  • Professional (Team members, employees/employers, network connections, medical and emergency workers, government workers, etc.)
  • Virtual (Social media connections, followers, etc.)      

Think about the vulnerable:

  • The elderly and the shut-ins
  • Those with underlying health issues
  • Those self-isolating for other reasons
  • Those without access to daily needs  

Then do something to show the love of Christ:

  • Make a phone call to check in and ask if help is needed
  • Offer to pick-up and drop-off needed supplies for those who can’t
  • Offer to pray with someone
  • Look at someone in the eyes and smile!
  • Consider volunteering at local service agency
  • (Fill in your own idea)  

Share!  

Then share with us your ideas and stories of what you’re doing or have done. We’d love to share some of them in upcoming sermons and communications. We can encourage and inspire each other to show love in ways we may never have thought of otherwise!   Send your stories to [email protected]
