Grace and Peace Radio Ep069 Calm in the Face of Calamity, A Conversation with Pastor Michael Shafran

It’s a powerful truth that even though the world may be engulfed in flames around us, Christians can have calm in the face of calamity. Ironically, many believers are ill-equipped or even ignorant of the ways God provides hope and peace, so they are left feeling fearful or anxious because of the chaos in the world.

This week, Anthony and Amy are joined by their pastor, Dr. Michael Shafran, pastor of Mount Moriah Baptist Church in Powdersville, South Carolina.

Together they discuss how God gives believers peace amidst the storms of life and means He expects us to be mature and disciplined to avail ourselves to have a strong faith, real hope, and genuine peace despite what we read in the news headlines day after day.

Scriptures referenced include 1 Samuel 2; Psalm 42, 43, and 73; Matthew 25:13; and Revelation 22.

Note: In the show Anthony tried to recall a quote about worry. He thought it was Leonard Ravenhill who said it, but it was actually Oswald Chambers. The exact quote from Chambers is:

Are you looking unto Jesus now, in the immediate matter that is pressing and receiving from Him peace? If so, He will be a gracious benediction of peace in and through you. But if you try to worry it out, you obliterate Him and deserve all you get.
