A Deadly Disease

Simon AllabyAudio, Story

Picture of coronavirus

Until now James Bond’s smallest nemesis was probably Nick Nack in The Man with the Golden Gun. But now Coronavirus has got him. Well to be more precise his latest film whose release date has been pushed back by seven months. For some reason considered more threatening than all the other viruses that affect us, our reaction to Coronavirus is having a significant impact. Cities in lock-down, stock markets crashing, sporting events postponed and sales of hand gel and face masks off the charts.

Our fear is that we might all catch it. The problem is that you only know you’ve got it once symptoms appear.

There is of course a disease far more deadly than Coronavirus about which we should be far more concerned. We all display the symptoms – sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires, greed, anger, rage, malice and slander. Like Coronavirus these are all symptoms we should be quick to avoid, and for that we need a vaccine.The good news is that while a vaccine for Coronavirus is still some months away, one for the problem of sin has been available for a long time. His name is Jesus.
