Greetings, Dear Neighbors
Greetings to you, dear neighbors. While we wish we were meeting you in different circumstances, we are glad you are here on our blog. In these unsettling times, we want to serve you. We want you to know that even in these days of trial, you can have peace.
This ravaging virus reminds us that peace cannot be found in this world. Disease, financial hardship, and the shadow of death loom over our broken world. We cannot find peace by ourselves. God, the Creator of life and the giver of peace, offers wholeness, restoration, and security. Jesus said to his disciples, “I have said these things to you, so that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world” (John 16:33).
In a world of disease, heartbreak, and all kinds of evil, the sinless Son of God became human and took on himself the sin of the whole world. On the cross, Jesus willingly absorbed the wrath of his holy Father, wrath that justly should fall upon us. Why did Jesus endure such undeserved suffering?
Love for his heavenly Father.
Love for his lost, broken, and rebellious children.
Love for you.
We want to serve you because we want you to know the peace that Jesus has freely given to us. If we can be a comfort and a friend to you in this time, please reach out to us. We are here for you.
In the midst of this crisis, when it seems this world is melting away, there is great hope. After Jesus gave up his life on the cross, three days later he rose again. Jesus is alive today! And he is mighty to save, for “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved” (Romans 10:13).
Are you anxious in this uncertain time? Take heart, dear neighbor. Look to Jesus. And let us know how we can serve you through grocery delivery, yard work, and prayer. You can reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
