In this sermon, Pastor Neil preaches on the triumph of Christ, Who is bigger than the coronavirus, or anything else in this world. Here are some excerpts:

He is with Us Always

… It is true that the coronavirus pandemic is real. It is not fake news. (Which is not to say that the news is being presented in the most objective way.) It is affecting – and has affected – real people. Some of us may get the virus. Real as it is, however, this pandemic is not forever. It will not last forever.

What is forever, the Bible reminds us, is that “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever” (Hebrews 13:8). He does not and will not change. So I want you to fix your gaze today not so much on the coronavirus and what is happening in the world as we seek to deal with the scope and seriousness of its spread, but on the Lord Jesus, who constantly reminds us: “I am with you always” (Matthew 28:20); and nothing – not the coronavirus or some other illness, “neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation – will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 8:38-39)

The Triumph of Christ– We Belong to Him

… Jesus is still on the throne. The coronavirus is a big deal. But God is bigger than the coronavirus, than the most powerful hurricane, than the most ominous threat of war or terrorism. Bigger than anything that will ever come your way. And you can be sure that He will, in His time, either bring you through or take you home to be with Him. We still belong to God. And He has not lost control. So do not be afraid or anxious in your heart…
