Do you hunger for deep peace instead of anxiety, discouragement, or anger?

“And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus….  the God of peace will be with you.”  — Apostle Paul                                  

These words, and the insights from the sentences that surround them in the Bible, transformed my life from anxiety to peace 25 years ago.

I invite you to hear my story and insights from God’s Word each Sunday at 10:30 AM, November 8 – December 6.

Path of PEAce (Philippians 4:4-9)

Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus…. 9 And the God of peace will be with you.

Step #1Praise Jesus’ salvation (rooted in v. 4)  

            Preach the Gospel to yourself daily

Step #2 – Emulate Jesus’ gentleness (rooted in v. 5) 

In the face of conflict, be ‘Jesus-gentle’ by –                   discerning and trusting God’s timing and presence; don’t be defensive nor manipulative.

Step #3 – A __________ Jesus’ intervention (rooted in v. 6)

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God

  • “in every situation”

 

  • “by prayer and petition”

 

  • “with thanksgiving”

 

  • “requests to God

________________________________________________

Peace practices for this week:

1)  Pray about every situation — not just big things, not just the ones beyond your control, not just the ones that seem to be spiritual or ethical – every situation.

2) ‘Pray through’ until you feel Jesus has heard your heart and you’ve heard His, then give thanks.

Blessed Assurance
 
Verse 1
Blessed assurance Jesus is mine
O what a foretaste of glory divine
Heir of salvation purchase of God
Born of His Spirit washed in His blood

This is my story this is my song
Praising my Savior all the day long
This is my story this is my song
Praising my Savior all the day long

Visions of rapture now burst on my sight
Angels descending bring from above
Echoes of mercy whispers of love

Perfect submission all is at rest
I in my Savior am happy and blest

CONNECT WITH US

Faith Community Church is full of opportunities to build relationships and get involved.
“My husband and I have been attending FCC for just over a year now and we continue to be awed by how this faith community has felt like home and incredibly thankful that God has provided a place for us to worship and get involved in Kingdom work when my husband’s work schedule doesn’t allow us to attend together on Sunday mornings. We are extremely appreciative that the church represents the city we live in, its diversity reminds us of God’s love for everyone and challenges us to live out that love in service to one another regardless of where we come from. The teaching from Pastor Blake brings new perspective and insights into God’s Word. FCC brought us back to God and we are SO THANKFUL for this church family!!
