A Word from Bob: Welcome to Part 5 of a blog mini-series on The Gospel Where You Live: God’s Prescription for Victory In Anxiety. I’m taking these thoughts from my booklet, Anxiety: Anatomy and Cure. You can read:

- Part 3 at Anxiety: What Difference Does the Cross Make?
- Part 4 at Facing Anxiety Face-to-Face with Christ
Gospel-Centered Response # 1: Faith in Your Father—Guard Your Relationship to God Your Guard
Throughout Philippians, Paul weaves gospel-centered principles of the faith response to fear. Not surprisingly, he saturates his letter with encouragement to focus our hearts on faith in our Father: Philippians 1:2, 6, 7; 2:12-13, 15; 3:8-11, 15, 20-21; 4:4-7, 13, 19.
All of these passages speak to the reality that the believer has an eternally secure relationship with God by grace through faith in Christ. Martin Luther, who struggled with anxiety, noted that to deal effectively with life’s daily fears, we must first deal with life’s ultimate fear—separation from God (Hebrews 2:15). My ultimate anxiety is my fear that I will never find peace with God, never be accepted by God.
Luther, Paul, the author of Hebrews, and the Apostle John all understand the core gospel-centered “answer” to ultimate fear and anxiety. “There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love” (1 John 4:18).
When I was working with Mike, we explored his relationship with Christ. He summarized the impact of our interactions.
“If we had only focused on my ‘earthly’ fears, we never would have hit the heart issue. When we started applying Romans 8 to my life, and the truth that there is no condemnation to those who are in Christ and that nothing can separate a Christian from God, that launched me on a path toward defeating anxiety. With that BIG issue settled, every other fear—while not wiped away—fell into place, a place I could handle with Christ. I needed the calm assurance of my eternally secure relationship with the God of peace before I could even begin to experience the peace of God in my daily struggles.”
Gospel-Centered Response # 2: Renew Your Image of God
Paul further stresses our faith relationship to God in the immediate context of Philippians 4:6 by sandwiching around and slicing within the following images:
- The Lord is near (4:4)
- The peace of God will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus (4:6)
- The God of peace will be with you (4:9)
When anxiety strikes, we focus so much on the situation and our feelings that we lose focus on God, or we accept a skewed view of God. Paul helps us to counter that temptation by renewing our image of God. He is the God of peace Who loved us so much that He sent His Son to reconcile us back to Himself.
Paul’s words remind us of Peter. “Cast all your anxiety on him.” Why? “Because he cares for you” (1 Peter 5:7). Is that your image of God: that you matter to Him, that He cares for you? (see also Matthew 6:25-34)?
Paul’s words also remind us of Hebrews. “I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?” (Hebrews 13:6). Where’s our power to view life like that? “Because God has said, ‘Never will I leave you, never will I forsake you.’ So we say with confidence, ‘The Lord is my helper’” (Hebrews 13:5-6).
When we see God as our God of peace, then we can experience the peace of God that guards our hearts and minds. Robertson translates it beautifully: “Shall garrison. God’s peace as a sentinel mounts guard over our lives”
When Mike and I discussed this concept he almost jumped out of his chair.
“I don’t have to live an anxious, guarded life. I don’t have to guard myself or be self-protective. I don’t have to be self-focused—always stuck scanning my horizon fearfully. I can live an unguarded life because God is my Guard! I can protect others because God is my Protector! I can focus my energies on God and others because God is my Sentinel!”
Gospel-Centered Response # 3: Engage in Worshipful Prayer Focused on God’s Character
The word Paul uses for anxiety in Philippians 4:6 pictures being habitually and perpetually stuck in the abyss of worry about everything, being continually distracted by many cares that draw the mind in countless divided directions. Paul’s a realist, so he tells us how to stop living like that: seeing God as our Guard helps guard our soul against the attack of anxiety.
As a realist, Paul doesn’t just say what not to do. He tells us what to do instead. Instead of giving into anxiety’s attack, fight back through prayer. Paul chooses a word for prayer which highlights worshipful prayer focusing on God’s character. In anxiety, we choose a crippling focus on our circumstances. In worshipful prayer, we choose a healing focus on God’s character.
This God-focus is reminiscent of Isaiah 26:3. “Thou will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Thee.” “Mind” is the Hebrew word for our imagination. It’s our ability to picture our world, to take snap-shot images that summarize our beliefs. Isaiah repeats “shalom” twice to communicate perfect peace, complete wholeness. We’ll experience shalom shalom when we focus our imagination faithfully on our faithful Father.
When we are feeling anxious, God speaks to us and says:
“I have chosen you and have not rejected you. So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you by my righteous right hand” (Isaiah 41:9-10).
When we anxiously fear spiritual separation anxiety, we must focus on our image of God Who is our faithful Father Who promises to forever love us in Christ.
Gospel-Centered Response # 4: Open Your Palms to God
So far we’ve only look at one word—prayer—in the litany of counsel that Paul gives us about what to do instead of giving into anxiety. He also urges us to relate to God through petition, thanksgiving, and requests.
When worry strikes, we’re to approach God our fatherly Guide with petitions—asking God urgently, specifically, and vulnerably to handle what we’re worry about, to supply our daily bread. In this spirit we present our requests to God. Paul pictures us asking God humbly, submissively, and trustingly.
Remember the musical Oliver? The poor orphan boy, Oliver, breaks the rules of the orphanage by daring to ask, “Please, Sir, may I have some more?” With both palms open wide and arms extended, Oliver lifts his empty bowl of soup heavenward. When anxiety attacks, attack back with trusting, humble asking.
“Father, I’m overwhelmed. I see no way out. I feel like I’m starved of resources. My bowl of soup is empty, my gas dank is on E, my resources are depleted. Rather than trusting in me, I’m clinging to You. I’m feeble. You’re Almighty. I refuse to rely upon myself. I choose to rely upon You.”
Gospel-Centered Response # 5: See God as a Rewarder, Not a Hoarder
We’re to pray and petition our faithful Father with thanksgiving. The Greek is eucharistias from which we glean our word Eucharist or the Lord’s Supper. It means gratefulness and gratitude in recognition of the gracious goodness of another. When life stinks, our perspective shrinks. When worry assaults, all looks negative, dark, hopeless.
In response, Paul says, “Don’t stand there stuck in the muck of stinkin’ thinkin’ and shrinking thinking! Courageously choose thankfulness because you believe God is a Rewarder, not a Hoarder (see Hebrews 11:6). Choose to remember that God is for you and not against you (see Romans 8:31-35). Choose courageous trust.”
The Rest of the Story
Do you have to face your fears alone? Never! God will never leave you or forsake. And, Christ gives us the people of God to journey with us as we face our fears. Join us in Part 6 as we ponder: It Takes a Congregation.

Right on Time
All the latter victims shared one simple characteristic, their phones rang. And in these latter executions, carried out as the whole world watched, their phone rang because a loved one on the other end was desperate to make sure that their beloved was safe. So killing the innocents wasn’t enough for the executioners. They also needed to know that the relative who called their love one for reassurance of their safety would know for the rest of their lives that it was their call that sealed the beloved victim’s fate.
This is pure, unadulterated evil. Once and for all. No playing around.
But for those of us at home? Time is running out.

Time to Stop Apologizing for Islam – Hal Lindsey
The fears are raw in Europe right now. This is real terror. And what do the terrorists have in common? It isn’t nationality, or skin color. It’s a religion.
Jesus said, “The truth shall make you free.” [John 8:32 NASB] Let’s stop lying and covering up for Islam, and shine the light of truth on it. The only difference between a good Muslim and bad Muslim is when he starts reading the Koran and Hadith literally.
End Times–The Bottom Line – Terry James
Jesus’ Olivet Discourse spoke to conditions exponentially moved beyond norms. In other words, the “distress” and “perplexity” that nations will be experiencing as His Second Coming nears will be beyond any ever known by people of earth. And, in biblical terms, “seas and waves” refer to the masses of peoples. Jesus said that because there will be unprecedented distress and perplexity among the nations, the peoples populating those nations will be “roaring.”
Calming the End-Time Rage – Markell
By Jan Markell
A weariness has set in as the weight of the world’s sin presses down so heavily that it is harder and harder to keep going. We feel like we are climbing a steep mountain with a heavy load. Up is down, black is white, evil is good. Political correctness will eventually destroy the planet. We’re tired of the Keystone Kops running the show in nearly every capital of the world.
Those of us anticipating Christ’s return have a great advantage. We listen for a trumpet in the midst of the carnage. If we listen carefully, we think we hear the hoof beats of the four horsemen in the distance.
Paris Aftermath, No Quick Fix
ARTICLES I LIKE FROM AROUND THE WEB:
(Click title to go to full article)
The Good Unwanted Gift of Singleness – “I wanted an MRS degree. Instead, I got a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science. I was never the girl who dreamed about getting married. I entered college single, and ready to take on the world. I had Christ, I was getting a good education, and I was content. Desires for a family lived somewhere out in the land of my thirties. At some point in my college years, childhood friends began getting engaged, married, and then pregnant. Very quickly, “it is not good for man to be alone” started sounding like me, too.”
Why Are You Praying for Paris? – “#PrayForParis has been a common hashtag on Twitter and Facebook since the terror attack in Paris, France on November 13, 2015. About 129 people were killed in coordinated attacks around Paris, and over 300 more injured. Should we pray? Absolutely we should. I spent some time in prayer Saturday evening that God’s will and his justice would be done, and that through this tragedy people would be saved, repenting of sin and coming to know the Lord Christ as Savior.”
Can ISIS be Considered Real Muslims? – “Much of the world continues astir in the wake of ISIS’s brutal attack last Friday on Paris which left 129 people killed and more than 350 wounded. Social media was quick to explode with prayers, cries of shock, outrage, and condemnation. But one common thread we have seen running throughout the tweets and headlines and comments of many has been along these lines: ‘ISIS are not real Muslims.’”
Some provisional reflections on the refugee situation – “In the aftermath of the horror last weekend, a lively discussion has broken-out over the United States’s role in sheltering Syrian refugees. The issue came into focus shortly after the attacks when it was discovered that one of the Paris attackers was carrying a Syrian passport that was used to enter Europe through Greece as a refugee from Syria.”
Fundamental Doctrine – “Scripture isn’t all good news— it also conveys some serious threats. As we consider the fundamentals of our faith, it’s clear the Lord has set forth some truths that cannot be trifled with. While God’s Word offers many glorious promises for believers who affirm and embrace essential gospel truths, it also warns of damnation for those who deny certain doctrines.”

There are certain things – ways of thinking – that can erode our confidence in God’s either ability or His willingness to keep His promises. What are those things? Well, the easy answer is circumstance. We encounter times of difficulty and trial and we think that those circumstances chip away at our resolve to believe. While that might be true, there are other things too that erode our confidence. And these things are not so easy to stomach, at least for me.
Patterns of Evidence: Exodus
This documentary looks fascinating:
Shaping organizational culture happens in many ways. We shape culture by the things we say. We cast clear and compelling vision. We lay out a strategy for how to accomplish the vision. We communicate values and behaviors we want to instill. We celebrate victories and highlight stories. These are all ways we can shape organizational culture.
We also shape and protect organizational culture by things we not allow to be said. By communicating what is off-limits or not tolerated, we shape the culture. By correcting in private, and reinforcing in public, we shape the kind of culture we believe helps execute our purpose.
As Christians we ought to be, above all people, concerned with such justice. We don’t just have the common grace motivation, rooted in the image of God and the law written on the heart, to care about stopping murder and injustice. We also have the personal implication. It’s our household being wiped out in the Middle East, the very place where our church started. For us, this isn’t a matter of “they”; it’s a matter of “us.”
It’s no surprise then that evangelical leaders have been calling for Christians to receive and serve refugees. A Christianity Today editorial this fall called Christians to embrace the “unparalleled opportunity to love neighbors here and abroad, and to showcase the beauty of the gospel that proclaims good news to the poor, liberty for those stuck in refugee camps, and a new life for those fleeing from oppression.”
Evangelicals recognize that many of these men, women and children are “brothers and sisters in Christ” who are leaving behind the cradle of Christian civilization.
But since the terrorist attacks in Paris last week, the debate over whether and how to receive refugees has intensified.

Our Time is Short
What is The Gospel?
God made everything out of nothing, including you and me. His main purpose in creation was to bring him pleasure.
The chief way in which we as humanity do this is through loving, obeying, and enjoying him perfectly.
Instead of this, we have sinned against our loving Creator and acted in high-handed rebellion.
God has vowed that he will righteously and lovingly judge sinners with eternal death.
But God, being merciful, loving, gracious, and just, sent his own son, Jesus Christ, in the likeness of man to live as a man; fulfilling his perfect requirements in the place of sinners; loving, obeying, and enjoying him perfectly.
And further, his son bore the eternal judgment of God upon the cross of Calvary, as he satisfied the eternal anger of God, standing in the place of sinners. God treated Jesus as a sinner, though he was perfectly sinless, that he might declare sinners as perfect.
This glorious transaction occurs as the sinner puts their faith (dependence, trust) in the Lord Jesus Christ as their substitute. God then charges Christ’s perfection to the sinner, and no longer views him as an enemy but instead an adopted son covered in the perfect righteousness of his son.
God furnished proof that this sacrifice was accepted by raising Jesus from the dead.
God will judge the world in righteousness and all of those who are not covered in the righteousness of Christ, depending on him for forgiveness, will be forced to stand on their own to bear the eternal anger of God.
Therefore, all must turn from sin and receive Christ Jesus as Lord.
There is no greater message to be heard than that which we call the gospel. But as important as that is, it is often given to massive distortions or over simplifications. People think they’re preaching the gospel to you when they tell you, ‘you can have a purpose to your life’, or that ‘you can have meaning to your life’, or that ‘you can have a personal relationship with Jesus.’ All of those things are true, and they’re all important, but they don’t get to the heart of the gospel.
The gospel is called the ‘good news’ because it addresses the most serious problem that you and I have as human beings, and that problem is simply this: God is holy and He is just, and I’m not. And at the end of my life, I’m going to stand before a just and holy God, and I’ll be judged. And I’ll be judged either on the basis of my own righteousness–or lack of it –or the righteousness of another. The good news of the gospel is that Jesus lived a life of perfect righteousness, of perfect obedience to God, not for His own well being but for His people. He has done for me what I couldn’t possibly do for myself. But not only has He lived that life of perfect obedience, He offered Himself as a perfect sacrifice to satisfy the justice and the righteousness of God.
The great misconception in our day is this: that God isn’t concerned to protect His own integrity. He’s a kind of wishy-washy deity, who just waves a wand of forgiveness over everybody. No. For God to forgive you is a very costly matter. It cost the sacrifice of His own Son. So valuable was that sacrifice that God pronounced it valuable by raising Him from the dead – so that Christ died for us, He was raised for our justification. So the gospel is something objective. It is the message of who Jesus is and what He did. And it also has a subjective dimension. How are the benefits of Jesus subjectively appropriated to us? How do I get it? The Bible makes it clear that we are justified not by our works, not by our efforts, not by our deeds, but by faith–and by faith alone. The only way you can receive the benefit of Christ’s life and death is by putting your trust in Him–and in Him alone. You do that, you’re declared just by God, you’re adopted into His family, you’re forgiven of all of your sins, and you have begun your pilgrimage for eternity.
If you picked up a hitchhiker (not that I recommend doing that) and he saw a Bible on your car seat and said, “I’ve heard about this thing called the Gospel – can you explain it to me before you drop me off in one minute up the street?” What would you say?
Can you explain the gospel in 30 seconds? In one minute? In five minutes?
Here’s one way I have found helpful. The five main components of the gospel can be remembered on 5 fingers of one hand. Here they are:
1) Jesus’ birth
2) Jesus’ life
3) Jesus’ death
4) Jesus’ resurrection
5) Jesus’ ascension
Obviously each point can be elaborated on depending on how much time you have. Here’s the short version:
1) Jesus’ birth – Jesus, God himself, the creator of the universe, the Messiah, became a human being – took on flesh, and was born of a virgin.
2) Jesus’ life – Jesus lived a life of perfect obedience to his Father. Though he was tempted in every way as we are, he never once sinned.
3) Jesus’ death – on the cross, Jesus himself took all our sins and paid for them. God the father counted all our sins to Jesus as if he himself had personally committed them. Then Jesus bore God’s wrath towards sin – the punishment we deserved – as a substitute for us.
4) Jesus’ resurrection – within 3 days, Jesus rose physically from the dead, proving that his sacrifice for sins have been accepted by God, since the punishment for sin was death. Jesus was seen by numerous people after he rose including 500 at one time (1 Corinthians 15).
5) Jesus’ ascension – Jesus ascended physically into heaven where he reigns as King of kings and Lord of lords. And someday he will return to the earth.
That’s the gospel, the good news, and if we believe in Jesus Christ and this good news and call upon him he will save us from our sins and give us eternal life.
That’s a simple way to remember the gospel – five fingers. Even a child can do it. So ask God to give you opportunities to share his good news today.

With that brief question Jesus Christ confronted His followers with the most important issue they would ever face. He had spent much time with them and made some bold claims about His identity and authority. Now the time had come for them either to believe or deny His teachings.
