The fear of COVID-19 has made many people rethink their views on eternity and many are earnestly seeking spiritual well-being. They want boldness to live (and die) but they don’t know it does not come separate from grace and peace. Wanting boldness without faith is like putting the cart before the horse. Grace, peace, boldness belong together. Because together they equal fearless living. Positive thinking does not kick the fear of dying out of the picture but God’s grace does….
