Peace and Love!

What does God (Father of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob) want from the followers of His one and only begotten Son Christ Jesus?

The message I hear from God’s Holy Word, is peace and love.  Throughout the Scriptures, we are led to this understanding and if I were to try and list all of the peace and/or love Scriptures, this post would be sooo long!  God is so Good… He loves us so much and not only gives us His peace but fills us with His Holy Spirit so that we too may exhibit His agape love.  WOW, WHAT A GIFT!!

Injustice happens, evil happens, we live in the world.  But are we to immediately jump to violence?  What good does violence do, when it is self gratifying, when it is motivated and directed by our own personal anger?  When we see the things happening in the world, in our nation, in our neighborhood, in our homes, that fill us with rage and/or hatred, the first thing we should do is drop to our knees and seek His guidance, seek His Will, seek His PEACE and LOVE so that our actions are defined by Him only.

Father God, help us… give us ears to hear and eyes to see You and Your Will in the midst of our problems and persecutions, in Jesus Name, AMEN!

Matthew 5:9 – Blessed [are] the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

1 John 4:8 – He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.
