Churches must now stand

Pastor Fansie Botes, Deo Doxa:

Right through human history, whenever disaster struck, humans turned back to God, their Creator. The driving force for this behaviour in the past was fear and uncertainty of what the future may hold.

Suddenly I find myself in a situation where I am uncertain of my next breath.

The sadness is that, as history teaches us, this change of behaviour does not last long.

The difference this time, in the situation we are finding ourselves in, is the vast scale of destruction this pandemic is causing.

Suddenly every individual on the globe is in some way or another personally involved.

The global church has suddenly a common goal and that is to encourage the believers worldwide with hope in a time of utter despair and fear.

But it is not just the global church that is impacted.

Our local churches experience a drastic period of transformation as well and we must adapt to keep on being relevant.

Multimedia created a platform for the Gospel to be preached in ways and places that were never imagined before, because the Church was confined between four walls.

In our city, my church, denomination, theology, dogma and believes are suddenly not so important anymore.

My church building is now empty and rendered useless.

My position or title as the man of God, the apostle, prophet or teacher has no impact, because only He that is seated on the throne can do the impossible by bringing true change about.

Our prayer is that we, as the Church in Welkom, will unite through this crisis with one common goal and that is to exalt our Lord Jesus Christ.

That the sleeping church will awake to be the light and the salt of the earth once again.
