Romans 14:17-19 talks about the Kingdom of God as “righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.” If you’re born again, you are in the Kingdom— but are you experiencing these things? Join Pastor Steve in the final installation of this series on Peace as He considers what Heaven— the final manifestation of God’s Kingdom— will be like for us. If this message doesn’t fill you with peace and joy, you’re not listening well enough!
You cannot change the mind of man until you change his heart. If you’re lacking peace, consider what’s residing in your heart? Psalm 119:165 says “Great peace they have which love the law, and nothing shall offend them.” Join Pastor Steve in seeking God for His Peace, and considering the subject of offense.
Patience is not weakness or cowardice, but powerful when harnessed to faith. In Psalm 40:1, David records “I waited patiently for the Lord to help me, and he turned to me and heard my cry.” Sometimes the only difference between success and failure is the patience that brings you to victory. Listen to Pastor Steve continue his teaching on patience in Romans 5:3-5.
Continuing to explore the topic of patience, Pastor Steve digs into Psalm 27:14 to see that “those who wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength.” We all need more strength, and patience is an unexpected avenue to it. Romans 8:25 shows that patience is also evidence of the presence of faith and the foundation of God’s Word in our lives.
