Coronavirus and Christ

Back to Growth Plan List

In Coronavirus and Christ, John Piper invites readers around the world to stand on the solid Rock, who is Jesus Christ, in whom our souls can be sustained by the sovereign God who ordains, governs, and reigns over all things to accomplish his wise and good purposes for those who trust in him.

Piper offers six biblical answers to the question, What is God doing through the coronavirus? -- reminding us that God is at work in this moment in history.

This is a time when the fragile form of this world is felt. The seemingly solid foundations are shaking. The question we should be asking is, Do we have a Rock under our feet? A Rock that cannot be shaken—ever?

01 01

Come to the Rock

There is a better way. There is a better place to stand: a Rock of certainty rather than the sand of probabilities.
02 02

The Rock Is Solid Right Now

The object of hope is future, but the experience of hope is present. And that present experience is powerful.
03 03

God Will Decide

The Rock we stand on is the Rock of God’s action in the world now, and forever.
04 04

A Solid Foundation

In the best and worst of times, God’s words bring unshakable peace and joy.
05 05

The Rock Is Righteous

God is in a class by Himself. He is like a one-of-a-kind diamond, supremely valuable. God doesn’t depend on anything else for His existence.
06 06

Sovereign over All

This is not a season for sentimental views of God. It is a bitter season. And God ordained it, governs it and will end it. No part of it is outside His sway.
07 07

The Sweetness of His Reign

The same sovereignty that could stop the coronavirus, yet doesn’t, is the very sovereignty that sustains the soul in it.
08 08

God Means it for Good

Not one sparrow falls but by God’s plan. Not one virus moves but by God’s plan. This is meticulous sovereignty.
09 09

A Closing Prayer

We sense, deep down, that this pandemic is appointed, in God's wisdom, for good and necessary purposes. We too must suffer.
