The Coronavirus and the ensuing economic crisis have left many of us fearful, anxious, and feeling depressed. What we need at this time is a word of peace. Really, what we all need at this time is a right understanding of the sovereignty of God. In this sermon, Brandon rightly says, "Resting in God's sovereignty gives us peace because it helps us to accept the things we can't control."
Knowing this makes living in a broken, fallen world possible. It makes work more meaningful and relationships more valuable. It is an anchor on the stormy days and a powerful gust of wind in our sails on the bright, glorious days. It is the epic – in an epic life (and in a not-so-epic life, too). It is the absolute – in a life lived to the absolute fullest extent. The end for which the beginning begins, and the beginning which gives us grace for every end that we must endure.
