How to Have Peace in a Pandemic

by Dale Partridge & Veronica Partridge

We are living in a world overrun with chaos, and many people, including Christians, are seeking a greater understanding of heavenly peace. But where do we find this peace? Is it something we can apply to our lives outside of Christ or does it come solely by way of the Holy Spirit?

In the letter to the Philippians, Paul writes, “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” What a massive command. Be anxious for nothing!? Nothing? Is this possible?

In this episode of Real Christianity, Dale and Veronica Partridge unpack the process of resting in the promises of Scripture and how Christians can be hopeful in what looks like hopeless times.
