Are you stressed? Hoping to leave 2020 in the rearview? You aren’t alone. The American Psychological Association reports that nearly 8 in 10 adults (78%) say the coronavirus pandemic is a significant source of stress in their life. And in that stress, 2020 has revealed just how tightly we cling to worry, to anger, and to control. But what does Jesus say? How do we as Christians respond to the stress of a year like 2020?
In this sermon, Mackey walks through Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount and proposes some trades. What might Jesus give to us if we were to let go of our worry, our anger, our control? Might it be the key we need to unlock newness of life in 2021.
When I am tempted to WORRY, I Give God my ATTENTION. When I am tempted to give into ANGER, I Give God my BEST When I am tempted to lose control because I have no control, I give God my circumstances.
