The Deadliest Virus
The Covid 19 virus that has affected our world has turned out to be a deadly virus. It has become more of a killer than many thought it would. Various nations around the world are taking measures to prevent the spread of this deadly virus. Canceled public events, constant hand washing, social distancing, and the sanitizing of surfaces are all being employed to cut into the virus’s transmission. Health officials are working hard to develop a vaccine and various ways to treat those who have been infected with Covid 19.
We are all in this together and so we must do our part to fight against this coronavirus. There is another virus that has spread to all of humanity and has infected every persons ever born into this world. It is the deadly virus of sin. The Bible tells us plainly that all have sinned and come short of the glory of God (Rom.3:10). It also gives us the mortality rate of this virus which is 100%. Romans 6:23 tells us that the wages of sin is death and Romans 3:19 declares that because of our sin the whole world is guilty before God.
While most people will recover on their own if they become infected from the Covid 19, no one will be able to fight off the virus of sin through their own efforts. Eph. 2:8,9 tells us that our good works are of no use.
So what can we do? Where is the vaccine? Where is the antidote to cure us from the deadliest virus? Only one has been developed and it is 100% effective to cure sin. It is the blood of Jesus. His death on the cross provided the only way we can be saved from our sin. Peter tells us that were redeemed by the precious blood of Christ (1 Peter 1:19). The cure for our infection is available. Jesus died for our sins. However, we must repent of our sins and receive Him as our Savior in order to be healed. This cure is offered to everyone free of charge. Will you receive it?
