    How to Find Peace
    Series: (All)

    "How to Find Peace" - Philippians 4 AS WE GATHER: In the first lesson today we hear about the conversion of the Apostle Paul who went from being someone who was out to destroy the Christian community to one who brought the "Peace of Christ" to them. Paul writes in the Epistle lesson about the "Peace that passes all understanding." In the Gospel lesson Jesus tells us that the way to peace is through Him because "He is the Way and the Truth and the Life." We will learn how to find that peace in the Message today.

    Mercy in Bread and Wine
    IN VIEW OF GOD’S MERCY: Welcome to this service for Maundy Thursday. As the bread is broken and the cup is poured in this service, Christ’s body and blood serve as agents of God’s mercy to us who are broken by sin and thirsting for righteousness. We now live covered by God’s mercy.

    Choose Church
    BEING CHALLENGE: Choose Church In the time when Jesus lived, the people assembled in either the temple or a synagogue. In all four Gospel accounts, on several different occasions, it is mentioned that Jesus was found at the temple or synagogues on a daily basis. Hebrews 10:25 exhorts us to “not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.” Church is not just something we do to feel good, it is an important spiritual habit that Jesus practiced and God’s Word encourages.

    Seek Solitude
    BEING CHALLENGE: Jesus had an extremely busy life. He was a very wanted man, crowds continually followed Him, pressed in on Him, and made requests of Him, etc. And yet, in the midst of all the busyness, Jesus was never so hurried that He missed out on the one person that He needed most. Solitude with God allowed Jesus to stay focused on the mission God called Him to. God has also called you to live on mission for Him.

    Prioritize Prayer
    BEING CHALLENGE: Prioritize Prayer
    In the Scriptures, we see Jesus praying alone, early, often and consistently. We see Him pray in nature, in solitude, overnight, before miracles, to offer thanksgiving, in the midst of difficulty, and even when He doesn’t like what’s ahead. Prayer was always a priority in the life of Jesus in every circumstance. Today we’ll learn about the keystone habit of prioritizing prayer in our lives.

    Study Scripture
    BEING CHALLENGE: Study Scripture In the only documented story, we have of Jesus Christ as a grown child, we see Him at the temple talking with and learning from the scholars about the Scriptures. At the end of that story, in Luke 2:52, we are told that Jesus Christ continued to grow in wisdom. Are you continuing to grow in wisdom? Studying Scripture allows you to gain wisdom about who God is and about who you are as His child.

In this service, we recall that no life is without suffering, but our sufferings are not worth comparing to the glory to be revealed to us in Jesus by God’s great mercy.
