Life was turned upside-down in 2020. Covid-19 affected everyone. Most are now wearing masks, safety distancing, and washing hands. We are now trained to stand on markers on the floor which help us to stay 6 feet apart. So many are desperate for life to return to “normal.” It is my opinion that life will never go back to the way it was a year ago. So many have lost their jobs. Businesses have gone under and will never come back. Lives have been destroyed.
The excitement over the vaccine has been incredible. People are waiting in line for hours to get it. Thousands are eagerly awaiting their turn to get the jab. They are grasping at the hope that this magic shot will help return life to normal. Their hopes are totally focused on this magical vaccine. Good luck with that.
I was watching a show the other day. A doctor had just received a second dose of the vaccine. A host on the show commented that the doctor was now protected for a year. Really?? This vaccine will have to be repeated every year??? What a windfall for the pharmaceutical companies who have rolled out the vaccine. First, Pfizer and then Moderna. AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson plan to distribute vaccines soon if not already.
It seems magical to me because of how fast they rolled it out. And it is using a new technology called mRNA. Call me a skeptic, but I’m just not sure that this vaccine will be the magic cure-all. The storage requirements make me believe that this vaccine is very fragile. I’m also not too crazy about the reported side effects. I am not planning to take this miracle shot. It just seems to be too convenient.
I also don’t believe that we will be returning to “normal” or the good ol’ days. Masks, safety distancing, and endless rules for everything are here to stay. I also would not be surprised for there to be a one-world government, and a global economic reset will be in place soon. Censorship is out of control. You can’t believe the news. Is it really the news or does someone control what you hear? Reminds me of Hitler in WWII. Have you ever heard of the Tribulation? I believe it is on the horizon. The world seems to be spiraling out of control.
My hope is not in a vaccine. My hope is placed securely in my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Where is your hope? If your hope is not in Jesus Christ, you need to put it there right now.
How do I do that?
- Admit you’re a sinner–Romans 3:23, Romans 6:23
- Believe in Jesus Christ–Romans 5:8, John 3:16, Acts 16:31
- Commit your life to Jesus Christ–Romans 10:9
Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6)
If you have placed your faith and hope in Jesus Christ, you have a place with Him for all eternity. That is where I want to be–in Heaven. You can keep your life here on earth and your dreams of returning to normal. When God sends Jesus to get his bride, the church, I’m outta here! I hope you’re outta here, too.
