Francis Chan: What I've Been Preparing People to Face for 7 Years Is Now Reality
Author Francis Chan recorded a new video from his home in Hong Kong to remind the body of Christ to hold on to their joy, peace and trust in God during this unpredictable COVID-19 crisis. He says it's amazing that he's been preaching sermons about small-group church for years, and now that's reality in many places around the world.
"This is one of the greatest opportunities we've ever had as a church where people are open to talking about serious things, life-and-death things, and suddenly we're no longer in control," Chan says. "I understand it is crazy, but don't lose your love. ...
"It's kind of crazy that for seven years, we've been preaching, 'Come on, you guys, we've got to get ready: There's going to come a day when we can't get in these big gatherings.' ... And then two weeks after I leave, you're living, and the whole country is having to live, that. But I believe it's God's grace on us to show us, 'Am I prepared? Have I lost my love, my joy, my peace?'"
