Highlighted Equipping Resources - Coronavirus and Christ
This Sunday, you will notice some new books have been made available on the shelves of the welcome desk in the foyer. These are resources we would like to highlight to the congregation for a period of time.
The purpose of highlighting these resources is simply to put biblically solid, Christ-exalting, affection-fueling resources in the hands of the members at Summit Woods for their personal growth in the Lord, to equip them to do the work of ministry, and for use in discipleship relationships.
Perhaps you’ve been looking for a new book for yourself to read in your devotional time, or perhaps you’ve been wanting to get together with a brother or sister in the Lord and desire to encourage them in their walk with the Lord – these resources are there to be readily available for you.
For this season, we wanted to highlight some resources to help us think through and respond biblically to the unprecedented circumstances in our world and nation. We hope these books will help you think critically and biblically as we seek to exalt Christ in a dying world.
This week we want to highlight Coronavirus and Christ, by John Piper.
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.
From the book, “…knowing that the same sovereignty that could stop the coronavirus, yet doesn’t, is the very sovereignty that sustains the soul in it. Indeed, more than sustains – sweetens. Sweetens with hope that God’s purposes are kind, even in death – for those who trust him.”
