Focused on God’s Word in Covid

Many have become focused on Covid vaccines. I have received a large number of links to anti-Covid vaccine material. I’ve looked at a lot of them, tested them as best I can, prayed about the matter. If someone thinks I haven’t looked at all sides, they are wrong. But life is very short, and I am confident that I have more important things to do with my time. And if you are saved, so do you. Since the beginning of the Covid pandemic, I have led our church to stay off social media and to stay focused on the Bible (reading, study, memorization, meditation, using the Weekly Memory Verse Journal, etc.), on prayer (private, family, corporate, prayer partners, “no prayer, no power; little prayer, little power; much prayer, much power”), on discipling every new member (one on one discipling with the One Year Discipleship Course), on building the families in God’s will (on mothers being the keepers of the home and fathers being the spiritual heads, on educating and disciplining and discipling the children), on expository Bible preachingon personal and family Bible courses, and on evangelism (every member being engaged, daily prayer for the unsaved, gospel Bible studies with the Seeker’s Bible Study, tracting, drug rehab guys, monthly gospel meetings, etc.). We want to be a Philadelphia church (Re. 3:7-13). God has blessed. I’ve never seen such unity in a congregation. Every single member of our church is faithful and growing spiritually, from the youngest to the oldest. This is our goal in obedience to Colossians 1:28, “Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus.” We are witnessing amazing conversions. We are nothing, of course, and we don’t claim to be anything; but I can see every evidence that God has blessed this church for obeying Him and not getting off track in the Covid era.
