Sermon Notes
The Light of Peace ~ Matthew 6:25-34

The sermon in one sentence: Anxiety and fear can be driven by a number of things, but God’s will for us is a sense of peace, even in a troubled world.

  • Two foundations for peace:
    • Remember that life is more than our present circumstances and future fears (6:25)
    • Remember that God delights in caring for his children (6:26-34)
  • Four practical ways to find peace:
    • Seek God above all else (6:33)
    • Remember the hope of the gospel: God will rescue (Isaiah 35)
    • Take your anxieties to God in prayer (Philippians 4:6-7, 1 Peter 5:6-7)
    • Seek help from others (Ecclesiastes 4:9-12)
