Certainly, at this very strong moment that as a society we live because of the pandemic, many have sought intensely from God. Now, if God were to deliver us from the coronavirus, would people still look for him?
First, to cause the crisis and panic caused by Covid-19 has contributed to many people seeking to approach Christ.
Although temples and places of worship in many countries are closed because of quarantine and prevention, it has failed to prevent the gospel from spreading. However, social media has been the means of blessing for millions of people around the world.
On the other hand, there are still people who remain unbelievers because of the other side of the situation with the infected and thousands of deaths from the crown virus. In this way, they maintain in their belief that in God’s goodness, he would not allow what is happening.
However, the word of God is very precise when he expresses that God is righteous in all his judgments, but sadly there are thousands who do not believe this. “Lord, thou art just; righteous are your decrees”; Psalm 119:137.
Today, thousands of questions arise to try to justify the fact of what is happening, just as they have thought that: “If God exists, why do they not pray to Him for this plague to go away?”or “If believers have prayed to God for the destruction of Covid-19, why does nothing happen?“.
However, by listening to this it is easy to realize that these people intend to prove God. In contrast, the question could change to: If God would deliver us from the Coronavirus, would the world still believe in Him?

Believing in God is necessary, although the problem is moral
First, we must understand that it is not good to tempt or prove God. So much so that Jesus himself said it in Matthew 4:7 “Jesus said unto him, It is also written: Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God”.
But for believers the views of the question must be another. We have to ask ourselves whether the eradication of contagion and the entire pandemic of Coronavirus will be enough to convert those who do not believe.
If you look at Jesus and his time on earth, He did countless miracles to the Jews and it was not yet enough for everyone to believe in Him.
Finally, it is determined that the problem of not believing in God is not in the human intellect, but in the moral.
What we should do as a church
In the face of this, the motivation of Christ’s church should not faint, but must be based on perseverance and constancy.
These two factors should be linked to prayer and preaching of the gospel; because God’s desire is for every person to know him.
