Christlike COVID-19 Trial - Did you pass God's Test?

Did You Pass God’s Test?

God has always allowed trials and tribulations in the lives of His children to test their loyalty and love. This post is the first in a series of articles that will examine the trials God uses to test His children, using COVID-19 as an example. This series will suggest seven spiritual “tests” by which you can examine yourself to evaluate how Christlike your behavior has been during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Introduction

Today, the SARS-CoV-2 virus and the COVID-19 disease it produces are afflicting the whole world, including Christians. This series of articles will be a Bible study, not a political commentary or rant.

This series is based on a 29-page e-Book on Biblical trials and God’s testing, and how Christians should behave. The e-book is called “7 Spiritual Tests – During the COVID-19 Trial.”

Like the e-Book, this series will suggest seven spiritual “tests” by which you can examine yourself to evaluate how Christlike your behavior has been during the COVID-19 pandemic. These posts will encourage you to examine your Christian behavior during these trials in light of God’s Word.
