Keep the faith

I am delighted to commend to you Faith in the time of Coronavirus and am deeply grateful to the Anglican Alliance for creating this resource. In such extraordinary times, it is not only helpful but vital that we engage together with God’s Word. 

Firstly, it enables us to root ourselves in the truth of God’s utter faithfulness. We discover afresh that, in Christ, we are never abandoned but are held by God, who comes alongside us. Secondly, God’s Word calls us to action. In opening Scripture together, we are reminded that we are the body of Christ, with new opportunities to serve our communities and to witness very practically to Christ’s love. And thirdly, we are filled anew with authentic hope. We can live the present and look to the future knowing the sovereignty of God and His reconciling love. 

I pray that, through these encouraging Bible studies, we will find comfort, strength and inspiration from God’s word, and be empowered by the Spirit to share that comfort and grace in these difficult days.
