This “What’s New” update feels a bit weird to write right now. The truth is… currently, there is not much going on. The world has changed so much in the last few weeks, and has completely shut down our ministry for this period of time.
I have gone through a few different stages during the “stay at home” order. At first, I was almost excited to be able to cross off items on my “to do list” that I thought I would never have the time to do. I still have things on that list, but I need a few nice weather days in a row to do them. The second stage I went through was a little rest time. That was nice for a few hours, and then we got really bored. The third stage is what we are doing now. We are working on new songs, videos, and new things for our concerts. I am excited to get them worked out and ready to use as soon as we can get back on the road. I am very excited to get back into the swing of things and share the Gospel.
I find it ironic (if that is the right word to use) that so many people are complaining about being forced to stay home. They feel stir crazy, cooped up, and just want to be free. The irony comes because people are complaining about just one month of isolation. But, when people ignore God and a relationship with Christ, they are looking at not just a month of isolation when they die, but an eternity of isolation with pain and suffering in the pits of Hell. If you think the last month has been bad, you have no idea what is in store for you for the rest of eternity when you ignore God’s love.
Just as we are waiting for the governor to tell us we are free to get out of our homes, we have the Gospel to let us know we are free from sin. The Gospel isn’t anything you have to wait for; it is available right now. The freedom that the Gospel gives us is freedom from sin that comes with a relationship with Christ. A relationship with Christ is your only way to be set free from eternal isolation. A relationship with Christ is the only way to be set free from the pits of Hell. A relationship with Christ is the only way to be free from the bondage you have with your sins. A relationship with Christ is the only way that you will have eternity in Heaven with Him.
That is the message of freedom that I want to spread to as many people as I possibly can – and as soon as I can.
Stay strong, stay safe and stay healthy. I hope to see you all very soon.
