Be Anxious For Nothing – Part 3 – Root #2 – Worldliness

Sermon Resources

 The second “Root of Anxiety” is our dependence upon the world.  As we look at I John 2:15 – 17, we find the simple command, “Do not love the world or anything in it”. This sets us at odds with the world in which we live.  Our dependence upon things, people, or position will steal our joy and peace and leads us to sin. Only a complete submission to God of everything we have and everything we are will lead us to live out this goal of “Be Anxious for Nothing!”

Be Anxious for Nothing (Philippians 4:6,7)

  We live in a world of chaos and our modern technology has not proven to simply our lives as much as it has proven to complicate our daily existence by constant contact with the troubles, fears, and strife of life around the world. We as Christians are called to a different lifestyle than the world.  We are called to PEACE not worry!  However, the church is filled to brim with worriers and they find the reality that worry destroys relationships, visions, and personal health.  How can we choose peace?  How can we defeat the enemy of anxiety?  In the next few sermons in this series, we take the Biblical command seriously to “Be anxious for nothing” and we will discuss what the bible says about how we can defeat anxiety as a way of life in all of us.
Series overview:
1.  TheRealization – that we don’t have to live a life of anxiety!  We are called to peace!
2.  The Roots – the first thing that we do when anxiety rises in us is to identify the root of the anxiety. When we know where it is coming from, we can direct our minds and hearts in prayer and proclamation in THAT area.
3.  The Results – Our choices have consequences!  When we choose anxiety over peace, we have chosen to go against the Biblical command and the results are devistating to our personal spiritual relationship with Christ, our relationships with others, our productivity as a person, and our joy and peace in general.
4.  The Remedy – We come full circle back to the theme verse in Philippians 4:6,7 and we see that there is specific things that we MUST do if we want to turn the tide of anxiety! We choose peace – then we must make the necessary choices that follow that to bring God’s promises and God’s Spirit into bear on our minds and hearts.
