How To Spread Peace During The Coronavirus COVID-19 Pandemic

Pastor Greg Surratt shares a powerful word of peace in these uncertain times as we deal with the global coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic.

Recorded March 12, 2020.

"The churches finest hour has always been in times of crisis
. Let our conversations be full of life and not death, helpful for building others up and not
adding to their fear.
Let our words of faith be a contagious healing balm in the difficult days ahead" -Pastor Greg Surratt

BECOMING CONTAGIOUS PEACEMAKERS IN UNCERTAIN TIMES
1.
LET OUR THOUGHTS BE IN FAITH AND NOT IN FEAR

Being Contagious Peacemakers

The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.
2 Corinthians 10:4–5 (NIV)

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Philippians 4:6–8 (NIV)

2.
LET OUR CONVERSATIONS BE FULL OF LIFE AND NOT DEATH


You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; ... and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness. Therefore each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to your neighbor, for we are all members of one body…. Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen
Ephesians 4:22, 24–25, 29 (NIV)

3.
LET OUR HOPE BE IN GOD NOT IN OUR OWN STRENGTH

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13 (NIV)


For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain. If I am to go on living in the body, this will mean fruitful labor for me. Yet what shall I choose? I do not know! I am torn between the two: I desire to depart and be with Christ, which is better by far; but it is more necessary for you that I remain in the body. Convinced of this, I know that I will remain, and I will continue with all of you for your progress and joy in the faith, so that through my being with you again your boasting in Christ Jesus will abound on account of me. Philippians 1:21–26 (NIV

I Don't Want to Live: Depression Motivation

Depression tells you that you don't want to live. You can't find reasons to keep living because the future is dark and completely pointless. Living simply doesn't make any logical sense. Motivation seems like some abstract concept and no one could talk you out of this darkness. Someone motivating you by yelling may not be what you need at this moment.
This video could be for people considering the thoughts of not living anymore but also a new perspective about life. I realize "motivation" may not be the right word here but this video may create a spark in the depressed mind to push on. If you don't want to live, I know that you have asked yourself the same questions I have. Why keep living when suffering is ahead and depression is a probable feeling in the future? What do I have to look forward to in life? What does life have to offer if I always will have depression? These philosophical questions are necessary to ponder and we need to do our best to think about life in different ways. The way we live and what we live for has everything to do with how content we are with our lives and our motivation to move forward.
Again, I realize in a depressed state, this isn't easy to see. The motivation you seek comes from within. If only a small cloud lifts for you to see that your thoughts aren't you, just for one moment, that is an incredible start to healing. Motivation will come after you realize that this will soon be over and the will to LIVE will be stronger. Depression is beyond difficult, and I truly empathize with anyone fighting this illness. I am there with you, and I believe in you.
I read a beautiful passage in this video that gives me a warm, hopeful feeling about life. I hope it gives you a sense of calm and encouragement to keep living and never surrendering to pain.

Guided Morning Meditation for Positive Energy

This morning meditation is for those of us who find it difficult to get out of bed and face the morning with energy. All of us struggle in the morning but we may run to coffee instead of meditation. We may look to the snooze button before meditation. We may have a lot to do during the day and our bed keeps us safe and far from harm.
This morning meditation walks you through deep breathing and slow body movements until you are out of bed, standing with confidence. Morning meditation is meant to be relaxing but also creates a sense of alertness in the mind. Following my guided voice will bring positive thoughts and energy into your mind.
Simply follow the instructions and complete this first task of the day with intention and optimism. Let this set the pace for the rest of your morning and day, until you come back to your bed with a smile because you faced the day with energy and confidence. Morning meditation will be the favourite thing you do each morning!

Message Notes:

The Lord's Prayer says, "But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well." Matthew 6:33 (NIV)

No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.
Matthew 6:24 (NIV)

WHEN GOD IS FIRST…

1. IT DECREASES MY CAPACITY FOR NEGATIVE EMOTIONS
Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Matthew 6:25 (NIV)

Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?
Matthew 6:26 (NIV)

Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life? Matthew 6:27 (NIV)
And why do you worry about clothes?... Matthew 6:28 (NIV)

…See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? Matthew 6:28-30 (NIV)

So do not worry, saying, “What shall we eat?” or “What shall we drink?” or “What shall we wear?” For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. Matthew 6:31-32 (NIV)

2. IT INCREASES MY CAPACITY FOR EVERYTHING ELSE
But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Matthew 6:33 (NIV)

3. IT GIVES ME THE ABILITY TO BE MY BEST TODAY
Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. Mathew 6:34 (NIV)

But when you pray…
This, then, is how you should pray:
“Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.”
