TRUE PEACE is having peace with God, and in Christ; then peace with self, and with others.
“If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men”.
(Romans 12:18 NKJV).
“Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.” – John 14:1-3
“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”.(John 14:27 NKJV).
“Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice! Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God;
AND THE PEACE OF GOD, WHICH SURPASSES ALL understanding, WILL GUARD YOUR HEARTS AND MINDS THROUGH CHRIST JESUS.
Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things”.(Philippians 4:4-8 NKJV)
The Lord placed these verses in my spirit this morning. May His words comfort all who read them.
Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
But whoever has this world’s goods, and sees his brother have need, and shuts up his heart of compassion from him, how dwells the love of God in him?
-The evidence of love is demonstrated in Giving, Caring, Sharing and Compassion.
-Love gives to others at the expense and sacrifice of self.
-Lust and hate always seek to get and take from others to satisfy themselves. These kind of individuals always seek to satisfy themselves at the expense of others.
People are to be Loved and not to be Used. Things are to be Used and not to be Loved.
-Beware of those who love things and use people, and especially beware of those who use people to get the things they love.
+++Let the Word of God be the standard for your life.
Blessed you are and blessed you will always be and to God be all the glory. Amen!
