Bro Shep Johnson message for March 29, 2020

Dear Reedy Branch Baptist Church Family:

The coronavirus or COVID19 has presented our world with some incredible
challenges. At no time in my memory has it been more important to be
diligent in prayer for one another.

As you know, Reedy Branch has suspended worship services for the
foreseeable future. We want to do everything we can to cooperate with
President Trump and our local, state, and national leaders as they seek to
minimize illness and death from the coronavirus.

As your interim pastor, I want to assure you of my prayers for each of you
and your family. I am planning to stay in contact with you by email.
Although we are unable to meet together for worship, I do plan to send out
regular messages of encouragement from God’s Word. If you know of anyone
who would like to receive copies of these messages, please sent me their
email address.

If you would like to talk with me about something, my email address is or you can speak with me by phone at (912) 381-4896.

Our deacons will also be making an effort to reach out by telephone. These
are difficult days and we need to do everything we can to stay in touch and
minister to one another.


Most Baptists know of the great English pastor, Charles Spurgeon. As a
young boy Charles was under the conviction of the Holy Spirit in regard to
his sin. According to Michael Reeves, “He was trapped in darkness and
despair. Spurgeon wrote, ‘What I wanted to know was, “How can I get my
sins forgiven?” . . . I panted and longed to understand how I might be
saved.’” (Autobiography, 1:105).

Reeves continues, “When Spurgeon was 15, in January 1850, walking to an
unnamed place of worship in Colchester, he was caught in a snowstorm. He
turned down Artillery Street and walked into a small primitive Methodist
chapel. The preacher’s text was *Isaiah 45:22*, *‘Look unto me, and be ye
saved, all the ends of the earth’* (KJV), and after about ten minutes, with
only twelve to fifteen people present, the preacher fixed his eyes on
Spurgeon and spoke to him directly: *‘Young man, you look very miserable.’
Then, lifting up his hands, he shouted, ‘Young man, look to Jesus Christ.
Look! Look! Look! You have nothin’ to do but to look and live.’” *

“Reflecting on that moment, Spurgeon later wrote: *‘I saw at once the way
of salvation. I know not what else he said, — I did not take much notice of
it, — I was so possessed with that one thought. Like as when the brazen
serpent was lifted up, the people only looked and were healed, so it was
with me.’”* (Autobiography, 1:106)

There is something powerful in looking unto the Lord. Nothing is too
difficult for Him and He loves His children so much. God loves you. He
cares about you. Even when we sin and disobey Him, the Lord continues to
love us.

We don’t know what lies ahead for our church, community, and nation. But
we do know this, when we feel afraid and overwhelmed, the Bible says we
need to look to the Lord.

The Psalmist writes in *Psalms 123:1-2 (NASB95),* *“To You I lift up my
eyes, O You who are enthroned in the heavens! Behold, as the eyes of
servants look to the hand of their master, as the eyes of a maid to the
hand of her mistress, so our eyes look to the LORD our God, until He is
gracious to us.”*

In these days of difficulty we need to remember what God said in *Isaiah
45:22 (NASB95)*, *“Turn to Me ... Look to Me ... and be saved, all the ends
of the earth; for I am God, and there is no other.” *Dear friends, let's
LOOK TO CHRIST AND LIVE. He is our Savior, our Lord, and our Great

Looking to Jesus, Your Brother in Christ,
