PEACE DURNING WORRISOME TIMES
Since we have been “sheltering in place,” my wife has sold things, thrown away things, rearranged things. Tammy has cleaned, painted, reorganized, and worked about 60 hours a week because she is in health care. Watching her do all this work has not been easy for me. But her “decluttering” did give me a sermon series idea.
The word “declutter” means “to remove unnecessary items from an untidy or overcrowded place.” So, for the next few weekends, my sermons will focus on some things we need to remove from our overcrowded minds.
This weekend (April 17 & 19, 2020), we learn about something many of us know well, worry. Worry threatens our peace and can bring destruction and disaster. Philippians 4 tells us how to declutter, how to deal with worry.
Philippians 4:6 – 7: Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank Him for all He has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.
Be with us online this weekend for some much-needed help from Philippians 4.
