Do you just wish COVID-19 would leave? Disappear? Well, we know it’s not going anywhere anytime soon, so why not talk about the elephant in the room – God’s Purpose?

John 1:3 says, “All things were made through [Jesus], and without him was not any thing made that was made” (ESV) That means that Jesus is the Creator of COVID-19. And he owns it. And has a purpose for it? Yes he does.

While it was directed toward parents, I invite anyone to consider what I said in a recent video. Consider, what would change in your house if you could say, “I believe Christ has a purpose for all things, and He has this (fill in the blank) purpose for COVID-19.” At the very least, God is showing how much we need Him and depend on Him for all things. Already, God is glorifying Himself and showing how much hope in Jesus Christ and His salvation is the only lasting thing to cling to in this life. Let’s consider Jesus’ purpose and proclaim His gospel together!
