Anyabwile on Care-Free Christianity

As we continue our posts this week on anxiety, I would encourage you to read this post from Thabite Anyabwile who uses 1 Peter 5:7 as a formula for responding to anxiety.  Read the whole post, but here is a summary.

We may live an anxiety-free Christian life. That is not to say we may live a life with no suffering or hardship. The people Peter wrote to were experiencing great suffering and struggling to understand it all. This word of comfort comes to the suffering and the worried, people with reason (humanly speaking) to be anxious. And it says simply, “Cast all your anxieties upon Him because He cares for you.” Trade your worries for God’s care through Christ.
