Who's watching

   As we go through this corona thing, we need to remember our walk.  The walk of a Christian.  The walk as a believer in our Lord Jesus Christ.  The walk before God the Father.  This walk is on earth.  Not only is it before God it is infront of men, women and children.  Not only men women and children but principalities and powers...
  Our walk is vital today! It is vital tomorrow...  Yes people are watching... But sadly we act as if it doesn't not matter.  We say things, we voice our oppinions, we accuse, we blame, we demand...
  Our children are watching, listening... Yes times are hard...  But as Christians we have a God who cares...  Who is alive and well.  He is active in our lives!  We have a Savior the Lord Jesus!  Who is alive and well; seated at the right hand of God.  We have the Holy Spirit; the helper of the believer.  Wow!
  But there is all this rebelious talk...  Some just defiant of the goverment...  Some just so selfish that their "freedom" is more important than the health of others and even the life of others.  Wow! 
  Romans 13:1-2 "Every person is to be in subjection to the Governing authorities.  For there is no authority execpt from God, and those which exist are established by God.  Therefore whoever resist authority has opposed the odinance of God; and they who have opposed will recieve condemnation upon themself."
 There is the word of God! For the believer and the unbeliever.  Who is watching you? Me?  First of all, our children.  Are we teaching them rebelious action... Oh some will argue, but my rights... How shallow an arguement... My lively hood... How shallow!  My freedom... How shallow! 
  How about friends?  Are you a good example... Helping encouraging... or are you a stubbling block?  The out side world is watching...  Are they saying look at those Christians, not obeying authority... Now I hear all the back lass and arguements...  This social distance thing is hoefully only for 6-8 weeks.  There is a reason!  Just look at New York City this could easily be every large city or town!  As believer's in Christ Jesus we need to  be an example of following authority...  Praying for our leaders... Praying against this virus... Praying against evil... and ...
Who is watching you?  God
