Fruit of the Spirit - Peace (9.1.19) (Philippians 4:4-7, Romans 12:14-21)Pastor Bryan Dugger, September 1, 2019
Part of the Fruit of the Spirit series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
Having peace is more than merely being free from worry or insecurity. Fundamentally, peace is about the abiding assurance of one's ongoing security - especially in the context of relationships. Most notably, there is a peace that comes from the Holy Spirit that is rooted in a wholeness and completeness in one's relationship with God. This is a peace we should be bearing in our life.

4Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice. 5Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand. 6Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. 7And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. (KJV)
14Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not. 15Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep. 16Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits. 17Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men. 18If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men. 19Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord. 20Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head. 21Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good. (KJV)
