The coronavirus causes us to confront, yet again, the problem of evil, and to ask why God permits such suffering.
Can COVID-19 be seen as a spiritual vaccine? It does awaken what many seem to ignore: This body of ours will one day die. At a time when we may expect or least expect, this life will end. Are you prepared?
As Christians, we truly can rejoice in our sufferings in these times, whatever they may be. It’s important to understand that God will bring benefit from our suffering, provided we unite ourselves to Christ.
