The Real Pandemic
Romans 3:23 (KJV) For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.
This succinct verse gives us a clear-cut illustration of the natural spiritual state of every heart. This scripture clarifies the prevalent epidemic naturally present in this world, rather than focusing on viruses such as the flu or pneumonia as being the major threat to our health and safety. Each one of us should be more concerned with the spiritual condition of the heart among strangers, friends, foes, and family alike rather than focusing all their time and attention on physical illnesses.
The state of the spiritual heart is a calamity from birth into this world and found at work in every lost soul. Unlike common physical ailments and chronic conditions, God assures us, physical disease and pain will not be present among His family in eternity. On the other hand, the presence of sin is promised to follow every lost soul into eternity.
You see, no person can match up to the perfection and glory of God in his or her merit, for he is a natural-born sinner. The answer to this spiritual malady is to allow God to purge each soul of the natural predisposition to sin. Each soul must choose to place trust in the power and presence of God, for it is the only answer for eradicating this widespread epidemic unleashed in this evil world.
