15 He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation. (Mark 16:15 NIV)
Did you ever wonder how much you would miss family and friends when you couldn’t see them every day or at least each week? Have you even noticed how many people you come into contact with in a given day until now, when contact has been restricted?
What do you worry about?
What do you get excited about?

So many things this side of Heaven have the potential to cause us to downward spiral into panic mode. Thousands have been infected with the Coronavirus, and it has affected the entire world. It has not only affected the entire world, but it has caused each person to reschedule, rethink, redo, reevaluate what has to be done vs. what needs to be done. Why? Because this virus truly affects our day to day life.
I don’t know if I would go as far to say that “No one cares that Jesus is coming,” but it certainly has caused me to consider this thought – Am I prepared and willing to act on the fact that Jesus is coming soon by rescheduling, rethinking, redoing, and reevaluate each and every moment in life to spread the gospel? What about you?
12 “Behold, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to everyone according to what he has done. (Revelation 22:12 NIV)
20 He who testifies to these things says, “Yes, I am coming soon.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus.
21 The grace of the Lord Jesus be with God’s people. Amen. (Revelation 22:20-21 NIV)
