The Church Role in Lockdown.

The role of the church in offering a moral alternative opinion in every society should be consistent. Daniel revealed the mind of God to king Nebuchadnezzar, Moses to king pharaoh, Nehimiah to king Artarxerxes among many others. The will and plan of God can only be revealed by the church through the holy spirit in a time like this. (Corona virus lockdown). What is God saying to the church for the nations in this lockdown?

Things will no longer be the same again. Social distancing has come to stay for how long? only God knows. Government across the globe will unanimously agree on new world regulations that will completely change human coexistence due to this pandemic. The unity of the church is most
needed now to speak the mind of God. Our relevance as the salt and light of the world should be exercised for a better world.

All church denominations must put away self gratification, pride and hero worship which has become prevalent before the lockdown. We must come together in unity of the faith. The church leadership need the holy spirit to see and function in boldness like the apostles of the Bible.

The church must also remember that God has equipped the body and those that represent it in the frontline.

From the Bible.
And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:
Ephesians 4 : 11-12.

Moses believed God’s words and went to speak to king pharaoh.

From the Bible.
I will send my fear before thee, and will destroy all the people to whom thou shalt come, and I will make all thine enemies turn their backs unto thee.
Exodus 23 : 27.

Daniel was able to reveal the truth to king Nebuchadnezzar because he is filled with the holy spirit and here is the king’s response after it all.

From the Bible.

“And at the end of the days I Nebuchadnezzar lifted up mine eyes unto heaven, and mine understanding returned unto me, and I blessed the most High, and I praised and honoured him that liveth for ever, whose dominion is an everlasting dominion, and his kingdom is from
generation to generation”. Daniel 4 : 34.

In conclusion.
The church does not exist for itself but to support the government of the day in building a healthy society. That can only be done by constant interaction and intervention of the church leadership for the good interest of all.

God help us.
