Romans, Part 12: How to Grow Hopeful During Affliction
March 15, 2020: We long for peace, but what is it and how do we get it? The world tells us that we get peace by acquiring stuff and insuring ourselves against an uncertain future, but Jesus had a very different idea of what truly calms a man’s anxious heart. Today, it is the Coronavirus. Yesterday, it was Ebola, polio, nuclear war, foreign invaders, leprosy, or a happenstance shingle that falls off a roof. If Jesus promises, “…my peace I leave with you” and then follows up with a command, “Do not be troubled or fearful,” do we have permission to insert, “unless….”? In this hour, like every hour since and every hour henceforth, we need His peace.

Does God offer guidance on how we can have great relationships? Today, Pastor Greg Byman launches a new four-part sermon series entitled, “Best Relationship Ever” and today’s message focuses on the art of excellent dating. When a Christian pauses to ask key questions like, “Why should I date? Who should I date? How should I date” that believer is wisely following God’s principles to experience excellent relationships.

A search for the word “content” reveals that Scripture has much to say about the matter. In Philippians 4:11, the apostle Paul famously exhorts millennia of fellow Christ-followers, “I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content.”
But how do we become and remain content? Today’s message is called “Practice Being Content” and is the second in a series called “Keys to Contentment.” The sermon was preached on February 4, 2018.

Many sermons in the St. Joe archive are machine-transcribed. St. Joe is presently transcribing its entire sermon library to render its content more easily accessible to the deaf and hard of hearing, those who speak English as a second language, and to make the sermon content searchable for everybody. While machine transcription makes this logistically and financially more viable, accuracy is sometimes sacrificed. St. Joe is gradually replacing machine transcription with human transcription as time and financial resources allow. Each sermon costs between $30 to $60 to transcribe. If you would like to help see the preached Word of God become accessible to more people, please consider an investment in the St. Joe ministry through the PayPal platform by sending funds to StJoeOnlineGiving@gmail.com, or click here.
