"Thought for the week 22nd November " Zoom "
Over these past weeks of lockdown I have discovered the blessings of zoom. I’ve had zoom meetings and zoom coffee and chats, and even a zoom Bible study. All of these have been great and have made me wonder why I haven’t done so before. But I suppose it is like all new things, we are scared of trying the unknown. It’s only when we try that we realise that this is definitely the way to go.
In some ways, deciding to use zoom is a bit like coming to faith in Jesus. What I mean is; although John’s gospel clearly tells us in chapter 14 verse 6 that Jesus says: “I am the way and the truth and the life. No-one comes to the Father except through me”, we question whether it is true. For if we fully commit to this new scary idea we are stepping over that threshold of the unknown. Maybe we ask, ‘how far will this take me?’ and ‘how much will this God stuff change my life, and will I still be in control?’ When using zoom for the first time, I wondered how it all worked and would I be able to do it. I asked others for advice as I tried to understand what all the buttons and settings could do. But I soon found that once I had started my zoom journey, those I zoomed with were sharing their knowledge with me and vice-versa. And I believe it is the same with our faith in Jesus. When we have given our life to Jesus, the Holy Spirit is with us every step of the way, helping us through what we could term as the scary and the unknown. As we read the Bible and pray and share with others we realise that although some things may be new or unfamiliar to us, following Jesus is definitely the right way to go and of course, with Jesus we can do it.
