Second Week of Advent: Peace
Wednesday, December 12, 2012

Scripture:  “For to set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace.”  Romans 8:6

Shout out “YAHOO” if you are worry free.  Uh oh, I can hear only crickets chirping.  Is it ironic to you that we Christians celebrate the Prince of Peace at Christmas while our minds and bodies are burdened with worries and stress?  God’s Word repeatedly promises peace to his followers, so why is the following often our norm:
•    How am I going to pay these bills?
•    My grief is more than I can bear!
