The Crown of Thorns and Coronavirus
Move Mountains with Mustard Seed Faith
Though Jesus acknowledged that even those saved by grace face trouble and persecution, He encouraged his disciples, “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 Then upon His resurrection Jesus appeared to the disciples and said, “Shalom! Peace be to you!” It is through His sacrifice and resurrection that perfect peace is possible – His fullness, rest, safety, prosperity, completion, health, well-being, and wholeness. Through His resurrection Jesus has overcome death to bring His Shalom as Isaiah prophesied; so too as His redeemed can we! Through the power of the Holy Spirit within us, we stand on His authority to call things that are, as though they were not! Remember, Jesus declared, “Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” Matthew 17:20 As Christ overcame the curse of sin, so too shall we overcome the coronavirus. Rejoice in the Lord for He is our Redeemer and our Shalom.
