Do you recall reading this WORD and PROMISE of PEACE, given, by our LORD, HIMSELF?
John 14:27 reveals it, saying: PEACE I leave with you, MY PEACE I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled neither let it be afraid.
These WORDS testify to the blessing of [PEACE - SHALOM] that our LORD, JESUS, so generously gives us: “We have the PEACE that passes all understanding down in our heart." Yes, down in our heart to stay!”
The PEACE of GOD, is truly a GIFT." And by our obedience to The WORD of The LIVING GOD; we are called, by GOD, to share that Gift." Yes, to share the Gift of Everlasting LIFE, "by sharing The finished work of The Cross of CHRIST, for the remission of sins." Yes, and to rejoice, in having PEACE." Yes, having PEACE with GOD, because of HIS GRACE, and MERCY, that was extended to us, by our obedience embrace the finished work of The Cross of CHRIST.
Yes, for The LORD commands everyone, through Acts 17:30-31, saying: Truly, these times of ignorance GOD overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent, because HE has appointed a Day on which HE will judge the world in RIGHTEOUSNESS by The Man Whom HE has ordained.
HE has given assurance of this to all by raising HIM from the dead.
Because we do Believe in our LORD'S finished work of The Cross, for the remission of our sins. "We enjoy HIM in our hearts, as we fellowship in HIS "PRESENCE."
Thus, John 16:33 gives us this encouraging WORD, saying: These things I have spoken to you, that in ME you may have PEACE.
In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world."
Because we Trust in CHRIST, and HIS finished work of The Cross; "We have the PEACE of GOD, that surpasses all understanding.
But GOD never intended for us to keep all of that peace to ourselves. As a matter of fact, in Philippians 2:4 our LORD, instructs each of us, not to look out only, for our own interests, but also, for the interests of others."
And so, PEACE, Beloved, is a gift to be shared with those around us.
Thus, our LORD encourages us, saying: "Freely you have recieved, freely give!"
You see, Beloved,
CHRIST, is our PEACE!"
And CHRIST," being The only PEACE for the entire world; "Speaks to us," whom HE,' has approved of, in Romans 10:15, saying🤔: And how shall they preach unless they are sent? As it is written: How beautiful are the feet of those who preach The GOSPEL of PEACE,
Who bring Good News of Good things.
As Christians, and "BORN AGAIN," Believers." It should mark our relationships and characterize the environment we live in, that as we live, and breathe." We look for every opportunity to share The GOOD NEWS of an "Eternal LIFE with CHRIST," by Trusting in the finished work of The Cross of CHRIST, for the remission of sins."
In HIS Sermon on the Mount, our LORD, JESUS, said;" Mathew 5:9, “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called son's of GOD.”
And I Believe,' that that simply, indicates that we are to be intentional about bringing "PEACE" to our relationships.
For our LORD, says, in Luke 11:23
He who is not with ME is against ME,
and he who does not gather with ME scatters.
If we're not gathering Soul's, for The GLORY of GOD; then we're likely "scattering seed" in the wrong places." I mean, knowing that we are "Ambassadors for CHRIST," Aren't we, to be gathering Soul's, for HIS GLORY?" Aren't we, Beloved?"
To make PEACE, and not trouble?" Because so many, are inclined to be troublemakers, instead of "peacemakers."
I remind you each, of Hebrews 6:9 makes this declaration, about SALVATION, and Everlasting LIFE.
And personally, I second the motion, by giving an AMEN to GOD'S WORD, that speaks, saying: But, Beloved, we are confident of better things concerning you, yes, things that accompany SALVATION, though we speak in this manner.
[And because I am confident regarding you, Beloved."
I Believe, that you know what
peacemaking look like? I Believe that you know, that it looks like "Ambassadors for CHRIST, pleading with this lost and dying world, saying" Be reconciled to GOD." Believe The GOSPEL of CHRIST!"
Yes, for we are called to be "Peacemakers" who turn the other cheek, and go the extra mile." We are called to be "peacemakers" who love our enemies with a good conscience, and a smile." Yes, peacemakers, Beloved, who pray for those who hate, and persecute us.
Why do we do this?"
Because GOD," is a peacemaker!" And when we make PEACE with the lost, by having them embrace The GOSPEL of the finished work of The Cross of CHRIST. We are “called sons of GOD.”
And so, Beloved
"Peacemaking is a family trait. And when it's all, said and done; I want to see you standing in your lot, with a smile, like as if you're having fun!"
I want to see you shinning like the stars forever!"
For Daniel 12:3 gives us this WORD of prophecy, saying: Those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the firmament,
And those who turn many to RIGHTEOUSNESS
Like the stars FOREVER and EVER.
That's how I wish to see you, Beloved!"
