Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice!
Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand.
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
The way to affect change: God style!
The world has been in an uproar of late. Fear, anger, rage…these are all attributes of the enemy of our soul.
We see a different approach for the man of God: gentleness, patience, self-control. We show power by praying and effect change by placing our concerns in God’s hands not our own.
What is the result?
Peace. Peace with God and peace with our brother. This allows us to remain strong in the midst of discord and upheaval.
A peaceful spirit allows us to act rational in an irrational world.
We are not of this world. Reflect your true citizenship in accordance with the Kingdom of God. The world will take notice.
