Protests… Elections and Covid-19… OH MY! This isn’t Kansas anymore Dorothy… Welcome to 2020! (And…) Here’s your SURVIVAL GUIDE! While the World around us is seemingly going CrAzY… The Apostle Paul gives us some pretty incredible insight through Romans 12 on how we are NOT to be CONFORMED or CHANGED by what we’re seeing unfold around us… but rather be TRANSFORMED by GOD through the RENEWING OF OUR MINDS! (So we might Think Differently!) Would you consider joining us this week at COC – as we head into the Last Week of a little series we’ve been calling 2020 SURVIVAL GUIDE: HOW JESUS WOULD LIVE DURING A PANDEMIC! (In this series…) We’ve showing you some practical ways on learning not just how to SURVIVE – but rather learning how to THRIVE in a World that has seriously become PLAGUED by ANXIETY – DOUBT and DEPRESSION!
Sunday Snapshot… (3) FINDING HAPPINESS IN A PANDEMIC (Mat Balgaard)
The Beatitudes (Matthew 5:3) - These are people who embrace daily dependence on God regardless of what they have – this makes them HAPPY!
The Beatitudes (Matthew 5:4) - Mourners are those who face death as a reality of life! (And...) Rather than fearing it - they embrace it knowing that the FEAR OF DYING will ROB YOU of the JOY OF LIVING!
The Beatitudes (Matthew 5:5) - MEEKNESS ISN'T WEAKNESS! Being MEEK is having a proper estimation of yourself - within the broader context of God’s Kingdom Plan! That Perspective brings genuine HAPPINESS!
The Beatitudes (Matthew 5:6) - Happy People are those who KNOW the RIGHT THING TO DO and have found the COURAGE to DO IT!
The Beatitudes (Matthew 5:10) - YOU ARE GOING TO SUFFER IN THIS LIFE for doing what is RIGHT and/or WRONG! (But...) You will only be truly HAPPY if you SUFFER for RIGHTEOUSNESS SAKE!
HAPPINESS and UNHAPPINESS are both OUTCOMES of the WAY A LIFE IS LIVED!
