There are many situations happening these days that make us realize how much God has been taken out of our lives, our country, our schools, etc. What if the essential businesses that are still open began to change that? What if they chose to be bold for Christ rather than fearful of nonbelievers who are driven by Satan? What if they chose to share messages of hope rather than messages of fear?
Being bold for Christ isn’t an easy task. Christ himself said that we would be hated because of our belief in Him. However, what if essential businesses were to be bold for Christ.
proclaiming the kingdom of God and teaching about the Lord Jesus Christ with all boldness and without hindrance.行为28:31（ESV）
What if the owners and managers were to put their faith in Christ and not the fear caused by the devil through nonbelievers complaining.
小孩，你是来自上帝的，克服了他们，因为他在你身上的人比在世界上大。1 John 4:4 (ESV)
无论是在前几天写的，都是为我们的教学编写的，通过耐力，通过我们可能有希望的经文的鼓励。Romans 15:4 (ESV)
We know churches have gone viral, and that more Bibles have been sold, and Bible Apps by the millions have been downloaded. However, what about people who may not have access to those mediums, or choose not to tune in to them. What if essential businesses chose to make a difference for God by being that first shining of God’s light for these people. What if even one essential business owned or managed by a Christian Believer is what it takes to make the difference in even one person’s life for Christ.
In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.马太福音5:16（ESV）
This is a time in our country like no other in our lifetime. We have the opportunity to share Christ’s love more than ever and people are listening because they are scared and searching for peace and hope. Essential businesses are frontline to many of these people.
对那些有焦虑的人说“坚强;不要怕！看哪，你的上帝会带来复仇，并享受上帝的回收。他会来救你。“Isaiah 35:4 (ESV)
