It is becoming clear that as this trial continues and potentially lengthens, some in our congregation will be greatly affected, while others because of their type or area of work, will be affected to a much lesser degree. Some needs within our body have already been brought to our attention. The word of God which guides our hearts reminds us in Galatians 6:2 to “Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.” What then is the law of Christ? It is to love the Lord with our heart, soul, mind, and strength, and to love our neighbor as ourselves. This is fulfilled by bearing one another’s burdens. The apostle Paul said in his letter to the Romans, “Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality (12:13).”

We are reminded by Paul in 2 Corinthians 9:11-12 “You will be enriched in every way to be generous in every way, which through us will produce thanksgiving to God.

Blessings in Christ
