Abundant Life Christian Bookstore 100% Online During the COVID-19 Crisis
Author: Jeuel Pavitt Date Posted:25 March 2020
As I write this article it grieves me to see what is happening in our country and around the world.
The next days, weeks and possibly months are going to be a difficult time for all, but through all we are going through with the COVID-19 crisis we must remember that no matter what happens, God is still in control and he has promised in his word that when we cry out to Him he listens and hears all that we say. He does not promise to answer us in the ways we ourselves might expect, but we can be assured that He will answer our prayers when we cry out to him with a humble heart.
We can take heart from passages like Isaiah 43:2 - 3a " When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. For I am the LORD thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour." and Psalm 91:2 " I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust."
God's word shows us that when we go through great trials that are painful to the heart, He has promised to be with us, but we need to come to Him with a humble and contrite heart.
We, at Abundant Life Christian Bookstore have had to make the difficult decision, based on the Government restrictions that have been put in place and on our desire for the ultimate safety of all our customers and our volunteers, to close the physical side of the bookstore until we are given the all clear by the Government to re-open.
However this decision has NOT affected in any way our online website www.alcbookstore.com.au which is open for business 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. On our website you can browse through thousands of products from Bibles, to books, to Music, DVD'S and Gift lines. And, to purchase it is as simple as clicking the mouse.
What this means is Abundant Life Christian Bookstore is still here as your Christian Bookstore on Brisbane's northside to meet whatever your needs are in the area of Christian literature or gift lines. And, remember, should something not be on our shelves we go by the principle "If it is in print we can get it for you"
So, as we journey through this crisis (that is gripping the world) together, remember Abundant Life Christian Bookstore is here for you and whatever your Christian literature needs might be.
May I say as I close this blog post, there is no better time than right now to share the love of Christ our wonderful saviour and Lord in both word and deed with all we come in contact with.
God Bless You
