Sermons about Peace
Preacher: Pastor Tony Simpson. Passage: Philippians 4 vv4-7. Paul commands the Philippians to be a people of joy, a people of gentleness, a people of prayer and a people of peace. He reminds them that the basis of these things is not their present circumstances but the gospel truths regarding their union with Christ, their restored relationship with their God, and their final vindication at the return of Christ.
Forgiveness, grace and mercy is something that God’s Modern Families are searching for and are deeply in need of. What has your journey been like? Experience freedom when you encounter the living God. Here’s some of my journey…
God wants to forgive you & heal you!
Would you prefer ugliness to be magnified, or for the LORD to be magnified? Really? Because you have opportunity every day to overlook foolishness in order to keep sight of, and magnify, Jesus. We each choose, daily, what will be magnified. 35 minutes.
Peace is the key to guarding your heart & your mind.
The fear of death is strong. However, God's Word is clear that, as followers of Jesus, we no longer need to fear death. Paul explains this is a hopeful and triumphant passage in 1 Corinthians 15 in which he proclaims that when Jesus returns, God will transform our physical bodies, making them imperishable. The reason for this is because physical decay that leads to death is actually a just judgment for humanity's sin that Jesus paid in full at the Cross for those who belong to Him by grace through faith. Thus, not only do decay and death have no place in God's eternal kingdom, but also death has been redefined from a transition to eternal condemnation to a transition to everlasting life in the presence of our Savior. In light of this, ask yourself, "Do I need an attitude adjustment about death?" With respect to loved ones in Christ who have died, find comfort and encouragement from these verses as you grieve. With respect to your own death, replace fear with peace and security in Jesus.
How do we find peace in time like these? It’s what we want isn’t it? It’s what we long for? But, it’s Boston, North Korea, Afghanistan, Al Qaeda, or the economy. And that doesn’t even include what might be going on just in your individual life. So, where can we find peace in times like these? I point us to John 16:33 today.
In the Old Testament the word for peace is Shalom - it means 'completeness.' If you have Shalom, you are complete. God created you and I to live in harmony with one another and with him.
