I know many of you are seeking peace is this world we live in. Many are looking in all the wrong places…..but YOU have come to the right place today!
Pastor Victor Tafoya shared this story with me: A lady once came to Billy Sunday and tried to rationalize her angry outbursts. “There’s nothing wrong with losing my temper,” she said. “I blow up, and then it’s all over.” “So does a shotgun,” Sunday replied, “and look at the damage it leaves behind!” Getting angry can sometimes be like leaping into a wonderfully responsive sports car, gunning the motor, taking off at high speed and then discovering the brakes are out of order. That’s how the scribes must have felt after Jesus had finished telling the parable of the vinedressers and the vineyard. They were so angry they couldn’t listen to the truth of his words.
Thank you pastor Vic…..anger kills the hearts and dreams of many. Anger leads to eternal regret. Anger goes into walls of homes and hearts.
This message from Sister Connie Keyohara really super blessed me and I know it will give you peace, the only true peace…..
There can be no true peace without Jesus. Temporary peace is only available through deception, addiction or distraction.
These things lead only to eternal regret. But Isaiah 9:6 says “God shall be called the Prince of Peace.”
“The LORD gives strength to his people; the LORD blesses his people with peace.”
“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”
The peace Jesus gives us is different from the peace the world offers us. Many times we search for peace elsewhere, but we’ll never find it there, unless it’s empty and temporary.
Jesus left his peace with us. His peace is the peace that allows us to stand still in the hardest of times.
A Christian’s life should come under the Bible teaching of peaceful living. People who live this way will avoid constant, difficult conflicts and unnecessary hardships.
“Make every effort to live in peace with everyone and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord.”
The times we are living in are very difficult, but God offers us hope and peace.
“Turn from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it.”
“A born-again person ought to possess unspeakable peace in the spirit.” – Watchman Nee
May God‘s peace surround you today and always.
