Message for Sunday, December 3rd
Being “at peace” means different things to different people. For some, it means a lack of stress in life. For others, it means financial security—money in the bank, nice things, and good retirement plan. Ask a mother of young kids and she might describe the hour after the kids have gone to sleep as being peaceful. From a Biblical point of view, peace comes first from a person, not from right circumstances.
Scripture: Isaiah 9:6
Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
1 Thessalonians 5:18
