Staying Strong in Faith During Quarantine

By Gabriel Smith

During quarantine it might be hard to remember to spend time with God. Without our Christian friends all around we don’t always have someone making sure we are seeking God. It would not be all that hard to fall away from God right now. 
“No one will know I didn’t watch the church service” “I don’t have to read my bible” “I don’t have to pray, no one will know the difference” and other lies like these will trap us into losing our faith in God.

Would not God discover this? For he knows the secrets of the heart.  (Psalms 44:21)

God knows the secrets of the heart. Even if your Christian friends and family don’t see you slacking off in your relationship with God, 

God sees you, after all it is a relationship with God not with your church friends. 

We have to remain faithful to God even though we don’t get to go to church and don’t get the same comradery that we do when we attend. 

In this time, we must ask ourselves is our prayer, bible reading, and church attendance for God, or is it for our Christian friends?
