It is a strange sense of community to log in while everyone stays at home. Since this pandemic is of great importance to the whole world, there is an unusual international obligation that gives us the opportunity to love our neighbors without spending time together. Instead of being excluded from the activities of others, we share the burden of disappointment and make memories while experiencing a historical event.

There is fear and deprivation, but there is also joy and peace in sharing. Our viral enemy is faceless and our human enemies fight in the same battle as we do. This is another chapter in the story of depravity, shared grace, hope for salvation, and our need for a healer.

This month the boys and I sang "O God, beyond praise" (borrowed the melody from "The Planets") and I love these lines:

Then listen, oh gracious savior,
Accept the love that we bring.
so that we, who know our favor, can serve you as our king;
and whether our tomorrow
be filled with good or evil
We will triumph through our worries
and rise to still bless you:
to marvel at Your beauty
and fame in Your Ways,
and do a joyful duty
our praise.

I was wondering what stories will look like in the new heavens and on the new earth. Without a crisis, bad guys or the need for heroic rescue, what new stories will flow through our Happily Ever After? Isn't the marriage relationship, which knows the groom daily and intimate, far superior to waiting for the wedding day?

We are waiting now, learning patience and moaning in our earthly tents as we try to please the Lord.

When Solomon consecrated the temple, he prayed that when God pressed the people of the country in various ways, including the plagues

"Whatever prayer or supplication is made by anyone or by all your people of Israel, if everyone knows their own burden and their own sorrows and spreads their hands to this temple: 30 then hear your place of residence from heaven and forgive and give in to everyone all his ways, whose hearts you know (because only you know the hearts of the sons of men), 31 so that they fear you to walk on your ways as long as they live in the land that you gave to our fathers. "

2 Corinthians 6: 28-31

Here is an invitation, a promise of mercy that is still being fulfilled, a hope we can remember if we want to celebrate the resurrection from home in a few weeks. Immanuel, God in quarantine with us. May our joyful duty be a victim of praise.
