Sermon Notes

   One of the themes in Paul’s letter to the church in Philippi is joy. Today many people seem to endure life rather than enjoy it. Their lives are filled with stress, anxiety, tension and turmoil that they allow to rob them of their joy.

   This morning in our series on Philippians, we are looking at chapter 4:4-9 in a message entitled A Recipe for Reducing Stress. Paul tells us not to be anxious about anything. But it is more than a simplistic “Don’t worry! Be happy!”

   He mentions some things that, if followers of Christ were to put in practice, would increase our faith and trust in God and reduce our stress and worry. It is possible for us to have the peace of God even in the midst of the storm we are going through.
