I find the level of fear discouraging when I am out and around. There are obviously people who see through the whole attempt to control by panic but there are also a lot of people who really believe they are going to die if they take a free breath.
This is a good time for believers to explain to people why they do not fear. You might want to review the following,
(1Pe 3:15 NAS77) but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence;If you are a believer you have a hope. That is not an empty wish but an assurance. Because of that you should not be walking around in a tizzy. The opportunity comes when you get a chance to explain to people why you are not frozen with fear. Your confidence is not in a rational analysis of the numbers, although that would certainly reduce your concern. It isn’t a belief in science or medicine, although we have the best in the world. No, you hope is in the Creator.
If you are a believer you are not paralyzed by fear are you? Maybe it is time to review what you should be telling other people. As my son said when he was a college student with his head being opened up to remove a growth, “What is the worst that can happen? If I die I get to be with Jesus and I don’t have to take the final.”
