The Biggest Problems in Not Dying from a Virus
The biggest problem is not dying from a virus; but dying without the Lord Jesus Christ! Even, if you don't die from the coronavirus, you are going to die anyway. The Bible says that we all have an appointment that we must keep and that appointment is death. The Bible says:
"And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment" (Heb. 9:27).
If you die outside of Christ, you will experience the worst death of all being cast into the lake of fire, which is the second death.
"But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death" (Rev. 21:8).
The Bible says that we are all sinners. We are all infected with the worse virus of all - which is "sin." That sin virus is infinitely worse than the Covid-19 and there is nothing you can do about it. Your good works; your baptism; your first communion; your church membership; and even your blue gloves, masks, hand sanitizer and face shield will not prevent you from escaping the second death. The only way to be healed from this virus called "sin" is through Jesus Christ, who is the great Physician. Jesus says:
"Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance" (Mark 2:17).
"For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God" (Rom. 3:23).
Go to Christ today. Put your faith in Him. You have no guarantee that you will be alive tomorrow. Now is the day of salvation! According to statistics, 150,000 people die every day around the world, and that is without the Covid-19! Are you ready to meet your maker? If you die tonight, are you sure you are going to heaven? Why would God let you in His Holy Heaven? You need a mediator. You need Christ! Christ is the only way to the Father. The Bible says:
"For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus" (1 Tim. 2:5).
Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me" (John 14:6).
"Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved" (Acts 4:12).
"For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon Him. For whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved." (Rom. 10:12-13).
"For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast" (Eph. 2:8-9).
"And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil" (John 3:14-19).
“Come now, and let us reason together,”
Says the Lord,
“Though your sins are like scarlet,
They shall be as white as snow;
Though they are red like crimson,
They shall be as wool (Isaiah 1:18).
"How shall we escape if we neglect so great a salvation, which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed to us by those who heard Him" (Heb. 2:3).
"...Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation" (2 Cor. 6:2).
