Today, the whole world is scared about the deadly Coronavirus that is killing both the small and mighty, People are now wearing gloves and masks for protection and obeying the WUHAM rules of hand washing, crowd avoidance, etc.
The truth is that in a few weeks and months from now, the negative effects of coronavirus on the world will manifest in form of job losses, closure of businesses, bankruptcy of nations, food crisis and so on.
Because of coronavirus, people now exercise restraint in movements, travels. Interpersonal relationships, and so on. Others are giving up passions and pleasures for fear of this virus. This is good.
However, there is a more terrible virus that you and I should be bothered about. Unfortunately, many of us are not. The SIN VIRUS is much more dangerous and destructive than coronavirus that kills only the human body.
“For the wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 6:23).
“But the fearful and unbelieving and the abominable, and murderers and whoremongers and sorcerers, and idolaters and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone; which is the second death” (Revelation 21:8).
Dear reader, the noise about coronavirus will pass away like that of some diseases that came in the past and shook the world. Let us be more bothered about the destination of our soul.
“What shall it profit a man if he shall gain the whole world and lose his own soul;” (Mark 8:36).
If you can sacrifice your comfort and pleasure to protect yourself from coronavirus that will pass away, it will be even wiser to sacrifice sinful lifestyle and wickedness on earth for eternity in heaven. Eternal sorrow in hell fire is not desirable.
It is time to drop the sin of stealing, lying, kidnapping, adultery, fraud, deceit, murder and other acts of wickedness that take a soul to everlasting torment in hell fire. “…for God is angry with the wicked everyday” (Psalm 7:11).
Fear more about what happens to your soul after death than about what will only kill your body, SIN VIRUS IS DEADLIER THAN CORONAVIRUS.
By this time yesterday, God knew that by this time today, you will be reading this piece. In fact, this piece was written because of you.
If you are yet to accept Jesus Christ into your heart as your Lord and personal saviour, there is no hope of eternity in heaven. Don’t postpone your salvation. Accept him now by saying this prayer:
“Lord Jesus! I come to you as I am. Please, forgive me my sins. Take over my heart. I confess you Jesus as my Lord and saviour. Thank you for taking over my life from today in Jesus name. Amen!
