At Caldwell County Cowboy Church, we believe Jesus’ command to love and serve one another as he loves and serves us means that we should be among the last ones to physically gather during this pandemic. Our rights under the U.S. Constitution give us the opportunity to be among the first. We can also point to our own personal needs as a reason to resume physical gatherings. However, this isn’t how Christ’s Kingdom functions. Mark tells us in Chapter 9, Verse 35 of his gospel that Jesus told his disciples: “Whoever wants to be first must take last place and be the servant of everyone else.”
So, we believe that, as Jesus followers, we should be willing to temporarily set aside our own earthly rights, needs, and desires in service to others. Instead of saying: “We can, so we will,” we are saying “We can, but we won’t.”
Jesus could have climbed off the cross. He could have put his rights, needs, and desires first. But he didn’t. Instead, he died in service to every one of us. That is what it means to “take last place and be the servant of everyone else.”

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to wreak havoc in the United States and abroad, we believe it is never more important that we keep our eyes on Jesus. So, this week, we are looking carefully at Christ’s ministry on earth. In better understanding the characteristics of the life of Jesus, we will be better able to exhibit those same characteristics in our own lives.
As Jesus followers, we should always be looking for ways to meet the needs of others in the name of Jesus. This includes those who have been most severely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. It goes without saying that our ability to minister in a hands-on fashion is limited in this age of social distancing. However, there are some great charitable organizations out there on the front lines of this battle that we can support financially without leaving our homes.
For a nationwide (in fact, global) option, we can support an organization such as GiveDirectly. According to their website, they are “responding to this crisis by doing what [they’ve] done for a decade: delivering cash.” GiveWell.org, an organization which makes it its mission to find and write about great charities, has named GiveDirectly one of its top-rated charities.
Generosity has always been one of the hallmarks of following Jesus. This is in no small part because the gospel is rooted in the ultimate generosity of Jesus himself.
“You know the generous grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. Though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, so that by his poverty he could make you rich.” 2 Corinthians 8:9.
Please continue to pray for healing in our world, nation, and community. And don’t forget that we are not dismissed…we are sent!
