New Focus: Peace of God (#887)
So here we are at our last fellowship of the year. Well Jesus Christ is referred to by many, many fine titles in the scriptures and one of them is the Prince of Peace. And since we are coming up on the time of year when many celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, I thought why not talk about the peace of God. Some have stated that all that I teach about is the peace of God. I do teach on a variety of topics, but they generally do come back at some point to the peace of God. I have found that when I’m trusting and reliant on God, I’m very peaceful. And if I’m upset, worried, stressed out, etc.; it usually is because I’ve forgotten to focus on God and aren’t peaceful. Let’s start in Psalm 4. And, for those that are interested in learning more on this subject there is a class on the website, entitled The Stayed Mind and Peace of God that covers this topic in more detail.
