Hebrews 13: 15-16 ” Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise – the fruit of lips that confess His Name. And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.”

Well it happened yesterday, the Governor of Illinois extended the “Stay at Home Order” for another month.  While I’m not surprised, I must admit a groan of disappointment came out of me.  What I have especially missed is the meeting together of fellow Believers at Church…and from many conversations with others, I know this is a common feeling.  That’s because we are all living stones being built into a Spiritual house called the Church (I Peter 2:5)…but right now the Church as we know it cannot be together…so what do we do?       Many weeks ago as I encouraged friends to reach out from their homes using their gifts, talents, and passions,  I called it their “Quarantine Ministry”  A way of practicing hospitality and works of charity from their homes using what the Lord has given them…their gifts, talents, and passions.  And I can only praise God as I watched these friends use what they do well to benefit others!  We may be isolating for another 30 days, but that doesn’t mean our acts of generosity should be affected.  For God’s work knows no bounds…and helping others is a beautiful act of praising His Name.
