Welcome back my friends.
So then, exactly 'where' do we find 'peace', 'true peace'? audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html.
[Continuing our 'chat' of February 11, 2020. See also posts February 3-5-7, 2020]
Isaiah prophesied of the 'Prince of Peace', who God revealed was Jesus, who said we would have 'peace in Him'. [Isaiah 9:6]. Before His crucifixion He told His disciples, “These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world” (John 16:33).
Let's continue from February 3, 5, 7, 11, 2020 today, in a 3-part post with 'tidbits' for a wonderful review during the week-end. Amen. Amen.
Before becoming a believer, or, 'in Christ', we were at war with God. We may have been sincere, religious, or even moral, but we were still enemies. We were, self-righteous. We needed to be brought back into a 'personal relationship with the 'Creator', as it was in the 'beginning'. [Genesis 1-2]
To 'reconcile' is to make right or to harmonize. Reconciliation involves different parties coming to the same position, and it always involves change. Obviously, if enemies are to be reconciled, there must be some kind of change, or friendship will be impossible.
'Essential Christian Reconciliation' is the idea of being made right with God. Before we go any further, we should clarify that our relationship with God was broken through no fault of God's. It was we who ran away from God, not vice versa (Genesis 3:8). God is perfect and we are not (Romans 3:23). He does not need to change, make concessions, or find some middle ground of cooperation with us. We are the ones that need changing. audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html.
Now, do you see, do you get a 'glimmer' of 'grace'?? God reaches out to 'man', condescending to save Him - our of His love and favor. Not because of his worth. WOW!
Again, because of our sin, we were actually the enemies of God (Romans 5:10). Amazingly, Christ took the first step to reconcile us to Himself. "In Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation" (2 Corinthians 5:19). God wanted us to be reconciled. He knew we could not solve our sin problem ourselves. So He provided a way for us to be made right with Him through Christ. audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html.
AMAZING GRACE! HOW SWEET IT IS, THAT SAVED A SINNER LIKE ME!
Believers have their sins forgiven, a necessary step in reconciliation with God. Colossians 1:21-22 says, "You, who once were alienated and hostile in mind, doing evil deeds, he has now reconciled in his body of flesh by his death, in order to present you holy and blameless and above reproach before him." We are no longer "alienated"; we are now forgiven, transformed, and reconciled. Because of what Jesus did for us on the cross, we can have fellowship with God. audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html.
Now, rather than seeing us as enemies, Christ calls us "friends" (John 15:15). Jesus is our 'peace'; He is our mediator who makes us right with God. "Since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ" (Romans 5:1). This is 'real peace'. audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html.
Take your time and carefully re-read the information in the post, and, thank you for returning this afternoon, when we continue over a 'sip of tea'. Remember to bring your 'goodies', for I am not able yet, to pass 'goodies' through via the computer to you.[smile]
Blessings in the Most Precious Name of Our Lord and Savior, Jesus. Christ. Amen.
Thank you for returning this afternoon, and a final post, this evening my friends. I want you to have all the 'thoughts' on this subject of 'real peace', for a wonderful week-end review and meditation. Amen. Amen.
