2020 – WEDNESDAY 01 JULY
A CALL FOR UNITY
Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice!
Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand.
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
Paul gives the believers a template to deal with their differences.
KEEP BEING JOYFUL
Wow – keep your joy and the enemy cannot keep you down.
KEEP BEING KIND
Kindness is not weakness – it is strength with understanding and compassion.
KEEP BEING READY
Keep living ready for the return of Jesus. Your present skirmish is nothing in the light of eternity.
KEEP BEING PRAYERFUL
Prayer changes everything – because it puts God back in charge.
KEEP BEING THANKFUL
In everything give thanks because it reaffirms that all good things are from the hand of the Lord.
KEEP BEING PEACEFUL
Learn to live in the peace of God.
The four fruits of peace.
It guards your heart & mind.
It guides your feet and walk.
It governs your mouth & tongue.
It gives you authority in life.
KEEP BEING GUARDED AND GUIDED BY PEACE
When you lose the peace of God you become defenceless and disarmed.
It is your responsibility to let the peace of God rule in your heart.
When you keep your peace within – you can be a peacemaker without.
PEACE I LEAVE WITH YOU
