Owning His Peace

Pastor Jay starts the series on Owning His Peace, with this week’s sermon “Owning His Peace” from John 14:27.

John 14:27 (ESV)

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.

We ought to own the peace of Christ.

  • We need to define His peace.
  • We need to see that the absence of peace is a problem.
  • We need to see how desirable His peace is.
  • We need to accept that His peace is the reasonable possession of the Christian.
  • We have to face our problem, not excuse it.
