III. SHAKES LIFE’S PRAISE 2:13-14
A.Suddenly…that’s the way it happens. An army of angels…the sky lit up with their glory.
B.What are these angels doing? “Praising God” That’s what we should do. That’s what we will do if we spend time in His presence!
C.All they want to do is have all the ‘glory’ go back to Him. Give God the
glory!!
D. Peace to men in whom God is well pleased. There is peace with God…the
war is over! This occurs at salvation. There is the peace of God…this is calm
in the midst of the storm. It is not superficial peace… this peace stops man’s
war with God. THIS PEACE CAN BE YOURS!
