As there is still much unknown about this virus and the death toll continues to climb, currently 2,128, we need to remember to pray but also to remember that ultimately the greatest need for anyone is saving-faith in Jesus.
Let us not allow this outbreak to cause us as believers to fear, but to find the necessary rest and assurance that we need in Christ and then share that with our neighbors, here and around the world.
