COM now here's Today's news discerned differently. This is the biggest logistical challenge the world has ever faced. This is how Tony Peters. An engineering and technology expert at Britain's Birmingham University describes the task of manufacturing and delivering a vaccine for covid nineteen to the world. The Reuters article calls this the biggest medical manufacturing challenge in history. Our focus since the start of the pandemic has understandably banana vaccine to stop the disease researchers. Researchers are developing more than one hundred forty vaccines against corona virus vaccines typically require years of research and testing before reaching the clinical stage, but scientists are working to produce an effective and safe vaccine by next year of the vaccines, currently under development, only three are in phase, three large-scale efficacy testing the last stage before being approved for use trial results will indicate whether regulators approve. Approve, a candidate for public use now we know that making and distributing vaccine should one be produced is a daunting task as well in the meantime, the CDC's says Covid, nineteen cases in the US could be ten times higher than reported in other words, a true number of infected Americans may tap twenty million. The Texas governor said this week that his State is facing a massive. Massive outbreak of the virus state health departments reported more than thirty seven thousand new cases yesterday setting a one day record. This local story especially touched me Betty and Curtis Tarpley of Fort Worth. Texas were married for fifty three years both contracted the virus nurses wheeled Betty into Curtis's ICU room, so they could be together. They died this week within an hour of each other. We have been focusing on the theme of encouragement in discouraging times as we face an escalating pandemic ongoing recession and divisive debates, policing statues in autonomous zones, Christians can find ways to rejoice in hope, and then share their hope with a hopeless world today. Let's close by claiming the hope. We Find in God's presence whatever our circumstances might be in civilization, the West and the rest historian, Nile Ferguson, identifies six factors that contributed to the growth and success of Western civilization decentralized competition that created A. A launchpad for nation states and capitalism, a commitment to science, especially in military applications, property rights, and the resulting rule of law and representative government advances in medicine, and thus life expectancy, a consumer society that drove the industrial revolution and a work ethic and moral framework, derived from among other sources Protestant Christianity which provides the glue for Dynamic and potentially unstable society created by the first five factors. When we remove this moral blue from culture. We should not be surprised when the culture comes unglued. Conversely, when we live all of life under the sovereignty of our king, we find that his word wisdom, and provisioned, give us contagious hope in the most hopeless of times when Paul and Silas Sang Hymns to. Midnight in a Philippian jail the prisoners we're listening to them. When a group of Moravian Christians continued to sing in worship God in a fearful storm John, Wesley was deeply impressed, and eventually made their faith his own in the midst of his groaning and Cry David toned to Mike King, and my God note the order a deity can be our God without being our King and master, as many religions across history can attest. Attest, but if a deity is our king, he must also be our God. I can have a transactional relationship with God as the Romans did with their Pantheon of deities we can separate such religion from the real world Sunday or Monday but I must have an unconditional relationship with a true can. All that is mine is his all I am is under his sovereign authority. Would God say he is your King Today. James Kester of the Society of Saint John The evangelist rates. We often discount the ordinary in our lives, forgetting that God is as likely to send angels when we are doing the dishes working at some task or having coffee with a friend as one we are engaged in some grand in mighty scheme. The challenges were us to pay attention. If we trust that God is king over and in every circumstance we face the worst that can happen leads to the best that can happen dying from Corona virus or anything else leads to life, eternal and glorious, and we find hope in Jesus that will draw others to our Lord Max. Lucado writes in May of two thousand eight. Eight, Steven Curtis Chapman and his wife Mary Beth lost their five year old daughter in an automobile accident. They were deluge by messages of kindness. One in particular gave Stephen Strength. It was from a pastor friend who lost his son in an auto accident. Remember your future with your daughter will be greater than your past with her Max ads. Our final home will hear no goodbyes gone forever. Let the promise change you from sagging to seeking for more INFO too hopeful from dwellers in the land of goodbyes to a heaven of lows. This is the hope we find. When we make God our King I ll ask once more would God say he is your King Today? Our latest book is now available in seven deadly sins how our oldest temptations can lead you from vice to virtue, Brian Denison and Dr Jim Denison, investigate the biblical and historical significance of the seven deadly sins, but how can pride envy wrath, slothfulness, greed, gluttony and lust.
