Our circumstances often overwhelm us to the point that we lose sight of all the things that will matter most in eternity. Are you distracted by the circumstances around you? Then listen to Pastor Chris Demetriou’s powerful message in GOD TV’s “It’s All Greek To Me.”
Peri or Circumstances
In this episode of GOD TV’s “It’s All Greek To Me,” Chris shares the meaning of the ancient Greek word “peri” or translated as “circumstances.”
Our circumstances differ from time to time. It could either be positive or negative. And Paul the Apostle mentioned “peri” in his letter to Colossians.
He wrote in Colossians 4:7-8. “Tychicus, a beloved brother, a faithful minister, and fellow servant in the Lord, will tell you all the news about me. I am sending him to you for this very purpose, that he may know your circumstances and comfort your hearts.”
Now, in this verse, Chris points out the Apostle Paul’s love towards the church in Colossae.
“If a messenger from the Apostle Paul was sent to know your circumstance, I want you to understand that God already knows your circumstances,” he remarked. “And that is an incredible truth that should release you from all the pressures.”
According to the “It’s All Greek To Me” host, when you acknowledge that God is fully aware of your circumstance, it will bring drastic change to your life.
“Your circumstances are nothing for God. He knows what your circumstances are,” Chris further added. He also encouraged the people to stop acting as if God doesn’t know about your situation because God knows every detail of your life.
And Chris stressed that God can send faithful ministers to help and comfort you because He knows.
