Thought of the Week
Life should be constantly viewed as a perpetual struggle between serving Christ and falling to the wiles of the devil. This week in Perth the faithful had to wear face masks in church. A large number of you waxed indignant that you had to do so and saw it as being “disrespectful to God” or “against the Canons of the church” or that “no one was going to tell you what to do by forcing you to wear a face mask.” Whatever your reasons, to those who did not go to church, ask yourself this: did you meet Christ in the Communion cup today? So, who won? Christ who beckons you to church or the devil who puts clever reasoning in your head as to why you should not go to church? You see the devil uses anything at his disposal to separate you from Christ. The tragedy is it took such a small thing as a face mask to do this. Next time, let us reflect before we let anything separate us from Christ.
