Pastor and author Tim Keller said, “In every disaster, whether it’s 9/11 or COVID-19, God is saying to people, ‘Eventually, I’m going to put an end to all of this. But for the time being, this world is broken, and every time you think you don’t need me and that you can get on top of it, something like this will come along to remind you that, no, you do need me”. We need Jesus.
Our efforts to build a society and a world without Him are failing miserably. We will fail because each of us is concerned with what’s best for us, not our neighbor. It’s a universal affliction. Even for those of us who try to live a God-centered life, most of our thoughts remain on ourselves. We need Jesus to change our hearts. The world needs Jesus to transform millions who are not ashamed to stand on His Word and share His gospel.
