Peace Unlike Any Other – SK Service Preview for 061310

If right now, you had great health, the job you wanted, 3 months worth of money in the bank, happy, healthy, Godly kids, a good relationship with your spouse, and a nice home, would you think, “I’m as at peace as I have ever been”?

I’m just wondering because God may grant you some or all of those thing…or none of them.  None of those things are the means by which you will have or know peace.  You might not have good health.  You might not have 3 days worth of money much less 3 months.  Kids are not always happy, healthy, or Godly.  Spouses fight.  Homes sometimes are too small, get damaged, or even get foreclosed upon.

But the Gospel, the fact that God has unwavering affection for you because of Jesus Christ, gives peace.  The Gospel is big enough if you don’t have money, if you’re not healthy, if you’re kids are a mess or if you’re marriage is a mess.  Peace is still possible for those who hope in Christ.

How do we know these things?   Well, this week, as we get close to wrapping up our study of Romans, we are going to look at these verses that will guarantee those promises:

Romans 16:20 The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet.   The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.

If you would like to join us at Sovereign King, we meet each Sunday at 10:30am, and you can find directions to our space at http://www.sovereignkingpca.net/1.2.html

Also, after our service, we will be enjoying a lunch together hosted by the Calhouns in honor of their son, Matt, who graduated from High School this weekend.
