We have some friends who live near Disneyland and for several years they have purchased season passes to the magic kingdom. Their 2-year-old daughter has lived her whole life being able to go to Disney on a regular basis.
This little girl’s life has been changed drastically with Disney being closed because of the coronavirus. Her parents have talked with her about the situation, and she seems to have a pretty good understanding of what is happening. However, she—like the rest of us—is anxious to get back to her normal lifestyle. She is constantly asking her Daddy, “Can we go to Disneyland when the germs go away?”
Sin is like germs that keep us from entering God’s kingdom. Thankfully, Jesus provided the cure when he died on the cross. All we have to do is accept the cure by responding to the grace God has offered us through Jesus.
“Just as people are destined to die once, and after that to face judgment, so Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him.”—Hebrews 9:27-28.
