The National Day of Prayer is this Thursday, May 5. I encourage you to spend special time talking to God.
The more you pray, the more you’ll understand God’s burden for people and nations. And you’ll learn that God is love (1 John 4:8).
The world understands little about real love. For some, it is equated with sexual desire and lust. For others, it is a mood that you can fall in or out of. The confusion exists because we’ve separated the definition of love from its author and greatest expression, Jesus Christ.
Love is the key to our 21st century problems. But how must we live it?
There have been many plagues during the past seven thousand years of recorded history. The Bible mentions them nearly 100 times and their effect upon both individuals and nations (e.g. Deuteronomy 28:59, Hosea 13:14, and Revelation 16:9, 18:4).
One person even wrote a song about it (Psalm 91).
More songs have been written about Jesus Christ and his resurrection than any other subject in history. This Sunday billions of people will celebrate His victory over death–even while a plague stalks the planet.
Here’s some encouragement from the Plague Psalm and Easter hope.
