Grace for Anxious Hearts

Dear Redemption City Family, 

Anxiety is ever-present in the lives of most people.  This is especially true in places like Boston.  It often feels like we’re all swimming in a daily sea of stress and worry.  There are no easy answers for our anxiety, and no single sermon can discuss every nuance and need. 

Everyone experiences suffering and stress from outward sources which can lead to an increase in anxiety.  Unfortunately, we can also add to our own level of anxiety by setting our hearts on pursuing things outside of God’s intent and design for our lives.

Join us tomorrow as we’ll be looking at Matthew 6:25-34.  In this passage, Jesus shows us how to redirect our energies and increase our confidence in him. A growing relationship with him is the end goal. In Christ there is peace, joy, and contentment as we place our confidence in who he is, what he has done and what he has promised us.

I hope to see you there.  

Praying for you,

Pastor Juan
