Episode 112: Peace Instead Of Fear
Most Christians would recognize the words of Jesus in John 14:27 where He promises His peace to all His followers. When He commands us to “let not your hearts be troubled”, we tend to experience a sense of reassurance and comfort. We all know these words of Jesus…but are we actually obeying them? In this episode of #MavericksAndMisfits, Jeff Lyle calls the listener to pinpoint the thing(s) that may be causing him/her to be living with a consistent thread of anxiety or fear in their lives. Then Jeff asks the listener to discern where it is that they turn to find relief or protection from what they fear. In the end, Jesus expects us to receive by faith the Peace that He promised each of us. It is not necessarily a feeling of peace in the beginning – it’s a confidence in His peace, that leads to the feelings of peace. Also included in this episode is a strong pastoral challenge for the listener to take ownership of limiting the voices that undermine the peace of Jesus in their lives.
