2Samuel 24:25 – And David built there an altar to the LORD and offered burnt offerings and peace offerings. So the LORD responded to the plea for the land, and the plague was removed from Israel.
While our current global plague may not be the direct result of specific sin as was Israel’s plague, we can rejoice in the provision of a sin-atoning, plague-removing sacrifice! Death entered the world through sin, but the sacrificial death of a sinless One who did not deserve to die has defeated death and restored life, for all who will trust in that Sacrifice (Romans 5:12,19,21).
We, all of us, deserve the plague, for we are all sinners. “But God, who is rich in mercy because of His great love with which He loved us even when we were dead in our sins, made us alive together with Christ–by grace you have been saved…through faith, and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God” (Ephesians 2:4,8-9)!
There is a cure for the plague! There is a sacrifice for sin! His name is Jesus Christ! Faith in Him as the cure applies the cure. People need to know!
Pray today for the people the Lord has placed in your life who still need the Cure. Pray that God would open doors for you to tell them, and would open their hearts to know they have the plague and to receive the Cure.
