The Covid 19 God Sent to Teach

The recent government reactions to Covid 19 are teaching us new things. As for me, I have been driven back to study matters of civil authority and the church, what the Bible says about quarantine and sickness and matters of ecclesiology regarding the meetings of the church in the face of digital broadcast christianity. But God brings new challenges to teach us new things and take us through often troublesome and exacting study and review. In Judges 3-5, it is clear that God sends armies against His people because, "they needed to be taught war" (3:2). And, they indeed learned new things. It was good. God gave them help and the leaders snapped into action to lead, and the people "offered themselves willingly" (5:9). There was "great resolve of heart (5:15) and they "jeopardized their lives" (5:18). Prayer was central, "Thus, let all your enemies perish, O Lord! But let those who love Him be like the sun when it comes out in full strength." (5:31)
