The Three Points of Peace

1. Heart (Emotions) = UP / Phil. 4:4-7

  • Praise God with Joy
  • Leads to Peace with Others 
  • Pray to God with Thanksgiving
  • Leads to God’s Peace within You



2. Head (Thoughts) = IN / Phil. 4:8

  • What dominates your thinking?
  • Soundtracks - Thoughts that “play on repeat” in our minds; and impact our mood, relationships, and actions
  • Is it true?
  • Is it kind?
  • Is it helpful?
  • Jon Acuff’s Process
  • Retire Old Soundtracks
  • Replace with New Soundtracks
  • Repeat the new Soundtracks
  • Application
  • What old soundtracks do you need to retire? Untrue, Unhelpful, Unkind
  • What new soundtracks can fill your mind?

3. Hands (Actions) = OUT / Phil. 4:9

Jesus, Our Peace

  2. Our Minds are Set on Him
