Spring Break, Coronavirus, & Jesus

Photo by Ryan, Beautiful day, 3-16-2020

Today is the first day of spring break for my wife and kids.  They will also be home next week doing school online due to the Coronavirus shut down.  It is a beautiful sunny 63 degrees here in Colorado today and we are enjoying it!  Despite the chaos surrounding the virus, God is still in control like He always has been.  Take some time today to remember that and thank God for that truth.

I will be taking time to hang out with my family during our time off, but I will still be blogging.  During this time of worldwide panic over the virus, I will do what I always do and point you to Jesus.  He is the reason my family and I have peace right now.  He is the reason we have peace every day, virus or no virus.  The Holy Spirit is a great comfort to all who believe in Jesus and He lives inside of us by God’s power!  There is no greater peace than knowing your soul is saved!

“On the last and greatest day of the Feast, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink.  Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him.”

John 7:37-38

Is your soul thirsty?  Only Jesus can quench that thirst!  We will all take our last breath someday, and the virus is a stark reminder of our mortality.  Only Jesus saves souls and we all need a Savior.  We have all sinned and we all need forgiveness.  Jesus is the only One who died to forgive our sins and take us to Heaven.  He alone is our salvation!

“for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.”

Romans 3:23-24

“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Romans 6:23

“Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.”

Acts 4:12

If you don’t know Jesus Christ, please come to Him today!  None of us know when our last breath will be, so we must be ready to go at anytime.  You come to Jesus and are saved by faith.  Put your faith in Jesus and He will save your soul!

“That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”

Romans 10:9

for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”

Romans 10:13

“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith–and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God–not by works, so that no one can boast.”

Ephesians 2:8-9

Jesus loves you, He died for you, and He does not want you to perish!  Receive His grace, mercy, and forgiveness with an open heart and rest in His salvation!  The greatest love of all is from the One who loves your soul!  Do not be afraid!  Come to Jesus and He will give you peace!

“Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.”

Romans 5:1

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

Jesus speaking in John 3:16

My heart and prayers are with all of you in every nation around the world!  The Lord will take care of everything and bring healing to us all!

Grace and peace to you all!

    1. Amen! Thank you Lesley! Yeah, very thankful for the beauty and majesty of the Lord displayed in the Rockies. I took the photo of Pikes Peak from our son’s room on the top floor.😊God bless!


  1. Ryan, thank you for this beautiful message and most meaningful reminder of God’s love and grace, especially in this serious and trying time that we all are facing in every corner of the world!! As we go through this together, we should be mindful to be kind and patient with one another as we try to stay safe and stay strong in our faith. 1 John 4-7 Dear friends, let us practice loving each other, for love comes from God and those who are loving and kind show that they are the children of God.
    Having Jesus does give us peace and we do rest in His salvation when we come to Him. Amen, Ryan!
    Gorgeous photo of Pikes Peak!!! Love you, Mom

  2. God is fully in charge. Much blessings my brother. Have fun with your family. Just want to share something fun that you can try with with your family during the spring break. Its a Bible game called sword in hand. The game is played by someone reading a verse of scripture from any chapter of the Bible of their choice, then the other participants would search that chapter until they find the verse. the 1st person to find the verse is the winner. its a good way to learn the Bible too. try it if you like . God bless
