March 18, 2012: Displacing Worry

Pursuing Excellence Series message 10

Text:Phil. 4:4-9

Who among us does not worry about situations or people in our lives? It is a natural response to challenging circumstances. Yet, God calls us to live above worry. Remember Galatians 5:1, "It is for freedom that Christ has set us free." When we hold a God-ward focus and settle our mind on the fact that that HE is on the Throne, our perspective changes! In Philippians 4:4-9, the Apostle Paul helps us see what this looks like. To put it in an equation form, it looks like this:P____ + P_____ + P_____ = P______. We'll crack the code on Sunday as we pursue excellence in our walk with Christ. What a load is off our backs when He helps us not to worry!
