8 Favorite Quotes From the Book “Where is God In A Coronavirus World?” by John Lennox

Happy Lord’s Day! Are you already missing the physical gatherings every Sunday? Like you I miss it too. So let’s keep on praying for this pandemic to pass. Also we Christian should let our light shine by extending a helping hand to others during this tough times.

Anyway, here’s some quotes from the book, Where is God in a Coronavirus World? by John Lennox published by The Good Book Company. If you like these quotes, please get the book by clicking here.

“When life seems predictable and under control, it is easy to put off asking the big questions, or to be satisfied with simplistic answers. But life is not that way right now—not for any of us. It is not surprising that, whatever your faith or belief system, the big questions of life are breaking through to the surface, demanding attention.”

“Your worldview will make a difference to how you react to disasters like the coronavirus pandemic, and to earthquakes or tsunamis. “

“Beware of anyone who interprets pain caused by natural evil as a divine punishment. But equally, beware also of anyone who says that God has nothing to say through this pandemic, particularly to Western societies that have largely turned their back on him as culturally irrelevant.”

“justifiable outrage against natural or moral evil presupposes a standard of “good” that is objectively real and independent of us, so that we expect others to agree with us in condemning certain things. These standards are “transcendent”—that is, they exist above the level of individual opinions.”

“God is not taken aback by the coronavirus; he can work for good even in the evil of it, and his plans will not be thwarted by it, although in situations like the present crisis it can be very hard for us to take this on board. At the same time, we are responsible for our own responses to the crisis and to each other—for he has given us that freedom.”

“a Christian is not so much a person who has solved the problem of pain, suffering and the coronavirus, but one who has come to love and trust a God who has himself suffered.”

“Here is the problem with our natural response to God’s future judgment: we welcome God’s intervention only so long as it is an intervention in the lives of others and not in ours.”

“The coronavirus is evidence that both our relationship with creation and creation’s relationship with us are disordered; and that this is not an accident.”

Book Review: Pray Big by Alistair Begg

4imlgfl

God is pleased with a praying believer. That’s a fundamental truth. It should bring a believer joy because not only that God is listening to our prayer, He is also pleased when we pray. There is no question that whatever prayer we bring to God, He will give His attention. But is there a specific prayer God wants us to pray? Of course, we are not here to discover a prayer that is much like casting a spell or some sort of code, once prayed, God will gladly obliged. Our aim is to further please Him and in the process bless us.

In Pray Big, Alistair Begg  encourages us in these pages to pray a more profound prayer from this beloved apostle. While Begg doesn’t discount other prayers specially those personal ones,   Pray Big demonstrates a prayer what is more needed that will bring a much more blessing to us, to others and glorify God. He starts by showing the Christian on the relationship he has with God and the benefits of being in union with our Creator. That is the jump off point to which this book further unleashes the prayer most needed to be on the lips of every believer.

This is not an epic read with all dramatic and moving stuff. It’s a plain excursion through one prayer of the apostle to the Gentiles that reminds us the big prayer we should meditate and pray. But that doesn’t mean that the simplicity of book means less. It does make room for awe and praise for God who wants us to pray the prayer that matters to Him. It’s plain but it’s what prayers should be . It’s simple but it’s essential. Definitely, Begg is spot on here when it comes to prayer.

Pray Big is a short easy read with a simple message, that is to desire to pray as Paul did for the believers in Ephesus. Simple yet we would likely to forget that these words. Begg’s book help us so we will keep it in mind. Paul’s prayer being moved by the Holy Spirit is essential for us in the Christian life. So start praying like an apostle today!

My verdict:
