Deciding for Covid-19 vaccine…

Ever since Covid 19, many have lived in the fear of contacting the virus and probably loosing a loved one to it. Holding on to Faith in the saving grace of Christ,  I had grown far above the Covid 19 scare. 

However with the introduction  of the COVID 19 vaccine, came many theories of conspiracy some of which are not only very disturbing but seems so unreal. Then with the vaccine and the many theories of conspiracy came a fear that was more scary than the virus. I actually began to think that taking the vaccine was a sin.

Today, many have gone ahead to take the vaccine in my country Nigeria but are too ashamed to admit it because of the conspiracy and religious bias. I encourage anyone in doubt to consult the Holy Spirit and take a decision. 

I initially told myself I didn’t need the vaccine and I prayed God to help me take a right decision on it. And this is what God did. He led me through Matthew 3:15 . “And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffered him.” So I agreed that I do not need the vaccine but to fulfill all righteousness and convinced in my Spirit I went ahead. And so for the record purpose, I took my first jab of the vaccine yesterday.

And guess what? I don’t feel like a sinner. I am more assured of my redemption and convinced that it had nothing to do with my salvation.

P.S:  My safety is not and can never be because of the vaccine, I am saved by grace through faith. “For it is by grace [God’s remarkable compassion and favor drawing you to Christ] that you have been saved [actually delivered from judgment and given eternal life] through faith. And this [salvation] is not of yourselves [not through your own effort], but it is the [undeserved, gracious] gift of God;” Ephesians‬ ‭2:8‬ ‭AMP. This alone is my boast.‬

My name is Adenike Babajamu. I am an organisational transformation expert and a content creator. I am passionate about human capital development. My focus in life is to help humanity see the light that shines at the end of every dark tunnel. I believe that everything is possible to him that believes it is. I am also assured that starting small in life is God’s divine nature but remaining small is an aberration and definitely not in line with God’s Plan for mankind. I am God-centric, a lover of God who makes Him the centre of everything.
