A Message From Pastor Andy

So do not fear!

What has come to us in these past number of days can cause fear to rise in us, even before we get to the virus fears about the economy and the effect on savings.  Fears about how a person’s business survives with no business during this period. Fears about getting the virus or a loved one coming down with it. Fears about the possibility of the loss of life. 

We are told in scripture that perfect love casts out fear.  In this fearful time what can we do? We can love. Love people, maybe in new ways we’ve never considered, but expressing love by restricting our own freedoms of association, presence, travel, and eating out. Maybe we can write words to friends or family reminding them how much we love them, affirming our relationships. We can love with an encouraging word.

Uncertainty can build our fear or our faith.  We are certainly in the zone of the unknown. There is however something we do know.  Isaiah records God’s word to us and it is encouraging, and freeing and calming. Right now here is what God says to you in this storm: “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Remember, our security isn’t in our 401k or even the safety of personal distancing and isolation. Our security is in God—he is with us, he upholds us, he gives us strength!  “So do not fear, for I am with you,” God.

Andy McDonald, Pastor
