For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Romans 8:6
The greatest gifts you can be giving were delivered to you by Jesus Christ thru his sacrifice on the cross. Life and Peace what could be better than that? But what good is a life without peace? Without the love of Jesus in our hearts we would be without peace. Many people are alive but live in turmoil and conflict. They have no peace because they don’t know Jesus.
The carnally minded follow the world and not Jesus. They believe if they feed there greed and lust it will bring them happiness. But not only does it bring them despair and heartache it ultimately leads to their destruction.
(John 14:27) “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”
Jesus confirms this in this scripture, basically he saying Follow Jesus not the World. The World is in great turmoil right now, why is that? Because everyone continues to follow their own lusts and desires and not the desires of God. When we follow the world we fail,when we follow Jesus you will have Peace and Life.
(Colossians 3:15) “And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.”
Have Peace in your heart, how do you get his peace? There is only one way and that’s thru Jesus. When you realize everything he gave and sacrificed for you. You are like a sheep out in the field ready to be devoured by the wolf, and he is the Good Shepherd that saved your life. God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, doesn’t that bring you Peace?
(Psalms 34:14)” Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.”
Seek Peace means seek Jesus. He is the Prince of Peace. Depart from the corrupted ways of this world. When you learn to let go and let God take control you then feel his presence of Peace. When we try to control everything we become stressed out and lose our Peace. Learn to trust in God and be at Peace with him. In Jesus name Amen
