How to Be Happy Though Stuck at Home

by Greg Laurie on Apr 19, 2020

In this webcast, Pastor Greg Laurie shares a message from Philippians 1 titled, “How to Be Happy Though Stuck at Home,” in the Quarantine Life series at Harvest Christian Fellowship.

Sermon Notes

God wants you to be happy. After all, God is happy—and we follow a happy God! Is it possible to be happy while living a “quarantine life”? Even though he was in prison, Paul wrote his letter to the Philippians with great joy. Paul knew God was in control, and we need to remember the same. Moreover, Paul understood that God was using his circumstances for good.


In order to be happy, you need to become a saint. “Saint” is an interchangeable term used for believers in the New Testament. God’s ultimate good work that He wants to do in you is to make you like Jesus. But before you can become a saint you need to know you are a sinner.

  • You need God more than you realize.
  • Heaven is a prepared place for a prepared people.
  • God has a place for you, but you must believe in Him.
