We all have things to think and worry about. But when I think of God, I feel comforted, because he will not leave us alone. Lord, you know the road ahead of me, and I am willing to put my hands into yours. When I go through painful trials, grant me this pleasant thought: that you do remember me!
Freedom: when it is wanted more than our Lord, it becomes an idol.
Money: when it is worshipped more than our Lord, it becomes an idol.
Housing security: when it takes offerings from our Lord, it becomes an idol.
Education: when the Lord is not taught in it, it becomes our idol.
As some of the extravagance and shine of Hong Kong has been exposed as fallacious, I pray that the unparalleled beauty of the church – those who have been rescued and redeemed by the Lamb and are determined to live for his glory – will stand out in this city, being an incarnational signpost to the hope of Jesus for all of Hong Kong.
COVID wears a crown. It’s a wannabe king. It has the power to make people fear it, to have it rule over their lives. However, we Christians have a far greater King. The only true God, who reigns over all the earth. Over every country, every person, and every cell. We can take our worries and concerns about the future to our gracious Savior and King, who knows us intimately and provides for us perfectly.
