Amidst the storm of COVID-19, we need to keep our focus on the Lord, not the waves and wind. It was when Peter took his eyes off Jesus, looking at the problem, that he sank. The same mistake can sink us.
In the midst of the COVID-19 crisis, we have a decision to make: we can either focus on the problem, or look to the Lord. Keeping our eyes on the problem, through being fixated on media reports and social media panic, will scare us to death. When Peter took his eyes off the Lord and fixed his gaze at the waves, he sank. Doing the same thing in the current coronavirus scare, will sink us.
During the time that we are spending more time at home than usual, why not look to Jesus, the master of the storm?
The new video series from Ascension Press, Jesus, the Way, the Truth and the Life, is a incomparable opportunity to use this time to draw closer to Jesus. Marcellino D’Ambrosio (“Dr. Italy”), Dr. Edward Sri and Jeff Cavins collaborated on the project. You can stream it at home by going to StreamJesus.net and get the book, study guide and timeline chart at www.JesusWTL.info. You will be drawn into the conversation between these three followers of Jesus and walk through the Holy Land with them. With concern over CoronaVirus, an actual pilgrimage may not be possible right now; but this will be a virtual pilgrimage that will open up new horizons for you even as you stay at home.
