Peace is more than a cool down in hostilities. In Hebrew, Shalom includes a wholeness from righteous rule that brings justice and fruitfulness for all. And that kind of peace can only happen once we are at peace with God. What does that mean? Peace with God is when repentant sinners are surrendered to King … Continue reading Peace with God →

Celebrate Advent with us! We have a reason for PEACE – Jesus Christ who forgives our sins and makes peace with God the Father for us! Embrace God’s Word with us as Elder Dave Shumaker continues our Advent series in the message, Peace FROM God, Peace WITH God. • In Christ, we can find peace FROM and WITH God (John 14:25-27) • We can’t have peace FROM God until we have peace WITH God (Romans 1:18-32). We can’t understand the Good News without first understanding the bad news, and the full scope of our rebellion and sin against God. Applications: • How can I help my children understand through gift-giving, that Christmas is about Jesus coming to earth and dying for us as a gift? • How can I minister to “that person” this Christmas? • Learn how to get a handle on your financial stress by signing up for the upcoming Financial Peace University class this winter. • Now is the time to turn from your sins, trust in Jesus Christ for your salvation, and receive peace WITH God.

Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid (John 14:27). I would to God that everyone in the world would understand the magnitude and import of the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ! Prior to His vicarious sacrifice on our behalf, the Bible says we were, “aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world” (Ephesians 2:12). We were enemies of God. But blessed be God! Romans 5:10 says He reconciled us to Himself by the death of Jesus Christ. Ephesians 2:13-18 says, “But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ. For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us; Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace; And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby: And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh. For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.” Hallelujah! Jesus paid the price and brought us into peace and union with the Father. No wonder Paul declares in Romans 5:1, “Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.” The word “peace” is from the Greek, “eirene.” It describes an end to hostilities. It means to be set at one. Through Christ Jesus, you've been set at one with God; you've come home in Him! There's no need to live in fear of judgment; Jesus has already taken the punishment for your sins. Isaiah 53:5 says, “…the chastisement of our peace was upon him…” (Isaiah 53:5). Hallelujah! Prayer Dear Father, I thank you for the message of reconciliation that has been committed to my trust. Through me, many in my world and in the regions beyond are coming to the knowledge of God, and into their inheritance in Christ; they're coming into the life of peace and union with the Father, free from condemnation, in Jesus' Name. Amen. Further Study: 1 Corinthians 4:1 Ephesians 3:8-9 To give towards sponsoring free copies please kindly click the below link https://buy.stripe.com/bIYcOj8vQepC3eM6op
All who are justified by faith in Christ have assurance of peace with God. This is Paul's opening proclamation as he moves us into a new section. Paul has shown that all are corrupt and culpable (1:18–3:20), but that by faith in Christ a sinner can be set right with God (3:21–4:25). Now, in chapters 5 through 6, he expounds upon the glories of life in Christ. Justification by faith alone has definite consequences. This section begins by celebrating the consequences of justification and thereby exulting in the assurance of having peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Ephesians 2:17 — What some describe as loneliness is actually a lack of peace with God. It is a worldwide problem that often goes undiagnosed and is the most pervasive disease on the planet. In this sermon on Ephesians 2:17 titled “Peace With God,” Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones explains Paul's words to the Ephesian church, primarily focusing on the necessity of peace with God. An important emphasis Dr. Lloyd-Jones makes is that Christ now preaches through the apostles what he was preaching in His own ministry: Jews and Gentiles alike are sinners and need peace with God. Jews in the New Testament made the fatal moralistic mistake of equating knowledge with obedience. Likewise, Gentiles fell short in that they chose to disobey the Lord with their sinful lifestyles. Dr. Lloyd-Jones uses vivid imagery to help listeners understand the reality of humanity's natural state of turmoil with God. He illustrates that the ocean is being pulled upon both by magnetic forces from the moon and the gravitational pull from the earth. This in turn causes massive turmoil and unrest in the ocean. This is similar to humanity's natural state. Humanity is not at rest; it is at war with God. Dr. Lloyd-Jones ends his sermon on an encouraging note: humans bear many burdens they need not bear simply because they have not brought them before the Lord. Listen in as Dr. Lloyd-Jones helps understand peace with God.

On Sunday, Pastor Josiah Walker preached Romans 5:1-5. In this sermon, “Peace with God,” he spoke on how we either have peace with God or the wrath of God resting on us. There is no middle ground. Through Christ alone, through faith alone, by God's grace alone we can have that peace. As you listen, ask yourself, “Do I have peace with God or is God's wrath still on me?” Copyright 2022.
