I Can Do All Things Through Christ Who Contents Me

This passage of Scripture is one of the most quoted and most misinterpreted sections of Scripture. The secret of the Christian life is learning how to live it out regardless of our circumstances. PHILIPPIANS 4:10-13 10 I rejoiced in the Lord greatly that now at length you have revived your concern for me. You were indeed concerned for me, but you had no opportunity. 11 Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to…

When Anxiety Attacks

Making a stance for joy is waging a war against worry. Scripture clearly teaches what a disciple should do when anxiety attacks. The only power that anxiety has is the permission that you give it. Philippians 4:4-9 4 Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice. 5 Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; 6 do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests…

Looking for Peace in All the Wrong Places

At Christmas time, people are searching for peace in all the wrong places. Christ has come not to bring us peace but to be our peace. Micah 5:1-5 Now muster your troops, O daughter of troops;     siege is laid against us; with a rod they strike the judge of Israel     on the cheek. 2 But you, O Bethlehem Ephrathah,     who are too little to be among the clans of Judah, from you shall come forth for me     one who is to…

No Storm Is a Match for Jesus

Jesus slept through the storms that terrified the disciples. No situation is so great that Jesus can’t handle it. Mark 4:35-41 35 On that day, when evening had come, he said to them, “Let us go across to the other side.” 36 And leaving the crowd, they took him with them in the boat, just as he was. And other boats were with him. 37 And a great windstorm arose, and the waves were breaking into the boat, so that…

Did the Angels Waste Their Words?

Peace on Earth Did the Angels Waste Their Words? (Luke 2:8-14) When the angels announced the birth of Jesus to the shepherds, they told them that peace on earth had come.  As we look around us, how do we reconcile this supposed peace with the state of the world? ANNOUNCING PEACE Jesus’ birth announcement came to lowly outcasts before the religious elite (Luke 2:8). The gospel of Jesus is able to turn great fear into great joy (Luke 2:9-10). The gospel…
