We introduced our first Sunday Sermon Series here: Peace In: Introduction
We started our study of biblical peace here: Peace In: Part I
And we’re continuing that study right here!
Peace In: Part II
Last week we looked at many misconceptions concerning peace – peace is not a feeling or a divine stamp of approval – and we ended our time together learning that biblical peace is a state of mind. It’s a “soul rest” that pervades our every situation. It protects us from fear, doubt, anger, and depression.
So the next logical question is . . . how does one achieve peace?
We’ll spend the bulk of our time in this series in the book of Philippians, so let’s start with an overview of Philippians 4:4-9.
Verses 4-6 are a list followed by a promise of peace in verse 7.
Then verse 8 gives us another long list followed by a verse 9 repeat of the promise from verse 7.
The promise? Peace.
