Are you getting more input from the media or from the Word of God?

There have been so many rumours surrounding Covid-19 from city lockdowns to a Wembley Stadium sized lasagne. Some are true, of course, but some simply are not.
It's hard to know what to believe. Amongst the hysteria and conflicting opinions, it's important to remember that there is one Truth that IS 100% reliable and sure. Jesus. Truth is a person. He is the living Word who will never wither, fade or die.

Put your phone on “Do Not Disturb.” Take a quiet, reflective moment to be totally honest with yourself on whether you've lost sight of Jesus in all of this.
Be intentional today to “adjust your input”. Reconnect with the one person in this time: Jesus. Ask Him to help you.
Pray: Jesus, help me to prioritise your Word over my experience. You are the way, the truth and the light.

In the Old Testament, the Israelites were required to frequently sacrifice an unblemished lamb to atone for sin. The offering had to be perfect to cover the debt of sin - it was the only way a person could stay in right standing with God. Jesus is often referred to as the “Lamb of God”, because His sacrifice on the cross covered the sin of humanity. One of the many miracles of the cross is that it reversed the curse of Adam and Eve’s sin: Just as one act of sin separated all of humanity from God, the sacrifice made by one perfect person covered the sin of all people and made a way for reconciliation. Because Jesus offered Himself for us, we hav
