Drive-thru Covid-19 vaccine clinic in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina.

When You Need Help

One day last week, The Medical University of South Carolina teamed up with
two local hospitals to conduct a drive-thru Covid-19 vaccine clinic in Mount
Pleasant, South Carolina. More than 1,000 people registered to receive the

Just as the clinic began, something went wrong with their computers,
grinding the registration process down to a halt. The line backed up to the
point that people had to wait an hour to receive the vaccine.

The mayor of Mount Pleasant needed some help. Who could he call to help
facilitate the process of coordinating the drive-thru so that they could
administer the vaccines more efficiently?

How about Chick-fil-A? They seem to be experts in the drive-thru business.

The mayor called manager Jerry Walkowiak from the Chick-fil-A restaurant
which was across the street from the church parking lot where the clinic was
being held. Walkowiak used his expertise in organizing the drive-thru,
cutting down wait time to 15 minutes.

The mayor tweeted a video on Friday of Walkowiak directing traffic as he
stood in the rain with an umbrella and wrote, "Chick-fil-A manager Jerry
Walkowiak donating his professional drive thru experience to help our
vaccination program in Mt Pleasant today."

"When you need help, call the pros," he went on to write.*

Two applications:

1. Everybody needs a little help at times. Don't be afraid to ask. Ask
someone that you trust. Ask someone with some valuable experience in
dealing with your problem. Ask someone who will give you Godly counsel.
There should be no shame in asking for help. We all need it from time to

2. Be available to help others. When asked for help, Walkowiak responded
immediately. He was willing and available. That's something that you and I
can do: be willing and available to help someone in time of need.

The Bible says, "Bear one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of
Christ" (Galatians 6:2).

The law of Christ is the law of love (see John 13:34-35). Jesus taught the
law of love and He embodied it.

Jesus helps bear our burdens. He's willing to take your greatest burden
(sin) and nail it to the cross so that you don't have to carry it anymore.
In fact, He already did it. He died on the cross for your sins and mine, so
that we can have the forgiveness of our sins, fellowship with God, and the
gift of eternal life (Romans 6:23; Ephesians 1:7).

God will save and give eternal life to those who place their faith and trust
in Jesus (Acts 16:30-31), turn from their sins in repentance (Acts
17:30-31), confess Jesus before men (Romans 10:9-10), and are baptized
(immersed) into Christ for the forgiveness of sins (Acts 2:38). He will
continue to cleanse from sin those who continue to walk in the light of His
Word (1 John 1:7-9).

We can't bear the burden of sin; we need help. Call on Jesus by accepting
His offer of salvation and eternal life. "And now why are you waiting?
Arise and be baptized, and wash away your sins, calling on the name of the
Lord" (Acts 22:16).
