“The Family of God”
2nd Sunday After Pentecost
What does it mean to do God’s will? How do we do it? Come now brothers and sisters, let’s go deeper into this pandemic thing. Why do you think God permitted this pandemic thing to happen around the world? If God really does not want us to suffer, why this pandemic? If God does not want us to live in poverty, groping in the dark and having fear and anxieties, why this pandemic?
Don’t you think God wants us to go back to our own family? Settle ourselves and make sure our family is in God’s hands, in God’s keeping, having God in the center of our family? And that being said, it extends to God’s family, the Church. Not the building, not the physical structure but us, you and me who do the will of God. Those who have a right relationship with Him – claiming Him to be our Lord and Savior. Don’t you think God intended and permitted this pandemic to move us a little further from the image of the building and concentrate on being a church even in our own homes?
