The ‘except’ clause…

One from the archive…

Livin' in the foothills

I can do all things in Christ, the one who strengthens me.

I usually start a sermon by doing a redirect on last week’s sermon. With so much of Paul there are these interlocking ideas. It’s as though I was in a room last week and there was an extension cord with a very strangely-shaped plug, and in this week’s room I found the wall receptacle that that one plug fits into…so I’ve got to go back and bring the extension cord and plug it in here and only here. Paul is like that.

There is an extension cord back there that plugs in right here, in this verse. It says

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.
