10-25-15 Calling Jesus Lord-Daily Peace

Calling Jesus Lord: Daily Peace
Matthew 6:25-34, Philippians 4:4-9

In Matthew 7:21 Jesus said, “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.” To call Jesus Lord and do the will of the Father means we trust God now and for our future. Fear and anxiety work against trusting in the Lord for our future. When we are confident that God is in control and His will is accomplished now and will be in the future, we can be at peace each day.
