Peace

June 30, 2019 |

Scripture: Philippians 4:1-9 | Series:

The politics of Jesus is a politics of peace. The Good News of the Gospel is that in Jesus God has made peace with the world - but that peace must be worked out in communities mired in conflict. Even in this fairly ideal church disagreements among prominent leaders threatened to divide the community. In this passage Paul speaks about how we, as the church, are charged to keep the peace because we've received a kind of peace that grace empowers us to practice.
