  • Scripture: John 14:27

ÑIdea:​I am free from anxiety because I have found
peace with God, peace with others, and peace with myself
Peace: “a state of tranquility or quiet” (Merriam-Webster)

Life without God = anxiety – conflict – turmoil
Jesus offers us instead HIS peace …
“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.” ​John 14:27

The world’s peace

The Real Story/Our Story/The Hoosiers Story

peace-filled even when things are not peaceful

His peace is NOT automatic
seek / PURSUE / PERSEVERE / submit
Psalm 34:14 – Psalm 85:8 – Hebrews 12:11 – Colossians 3:12-15

PEACEmaker or TROUBLEmaker
Romans 14:19 – Hebrews 12:14

A clean slate & a job to do

Peacemakers are GIANTslayers
