Key Scriptures

Key Points

  • Until we accept by faith the blood that was shed by Jesus for our sins, we are at war with God. Jesus grants us peace with God.
  • Jesus gives us peace with God, then gives us the Peace that comes from God
  • This peace can be partially interrupted by uncertainty, untruths, unforgiveness, unrighteous living, and unconfessed sin.
  • Paul exhorts us to bring our anxious thoughts to prayer and meditate on specific things that bring peace.
  • Peace is not the absence of difficult circumstances. Peace is the presence of God.
  • People who have experienced trauma need to include others in the process of walking out from under the burden of carrying these fears.

Discussion Questions
