Preaching Notes – Sunday 7/19

God’s Word provides the clear pathway toward reducing worry, fear, and anxiety.

The natural response to worry is trying to change the negative feelings – agitation, discouragement, edginess, impatience. Merely setting out to feel different fails to resolve the struggle fear causes.

Simple biblical steps make possible a supernatural response to these threats to happiness and inner peace – Relinquishment.

When practiced daily, these simple biblical steps – Relinquishment – make for daily living that is more meaningful. With time and commitment, a new habit is formed and the response to anxiety becomes less of a futile attempt to change negative feelings and more of a grace-filled liberation from them.

Relinquishment is the biblical response for intentional disciples of Christ Jesus to be rid of the stranglehold of worry and find true and lasting joy.
