“If you know Christ as Lord then you have a responsibility to spread this Good News to those around you so that they too may have the chance to be infected with faith. Faith is contagious but we need to open our mouths before it will spread.”
Day after day, in the temple courts and from house to house, they never stopped teaching and proclaiming the good news that Jesus is the Christ.
Covid-19 has probably been the most universally transmitted viral infection the world has ever known. As the original strain has modified with every mutation, it has become increasingly contagious. We pray for those who have suffered the ills of this pandemic. We pray for healing, sustenance and restoration.
As drastic as this pandemic has been it has got me thinking about the gospel. The Scripture tells us that the word of God propagates faith. That is, faith becomes contagious if God’s word is spread. Faith is a very contagious commodity that, once contracted, will change a person’s life for the good, for good. The message of Christ is the Good News that Jesus took the consequences of sin upon himself when he died in our place on the cross. The grace of God is shown by Jesus’ death and resurrection and we are saved by grace through faith. Faith is contagious but, unlike Covid-19, contacting faith results in life not death! And this message is spread through the lips of those who have already been infected with faith.
Jesus commissioned us to be his witnesses throughout the world. If you know Christ as Lord then you have already moved from condemnation to mercy, from legal bondage to grace and from a death sentence to abundant life. If you know Christ as Lord then you are contaminated with faith, a faith that comes by the Good News. If you know Christ as Lord then you have a responsibility to spread this Good News to those around you so that they too may have the chance to be infected with faith. Faith is contagious but we need to open our mouths before it will spread.
