Good morning brothers and sisters. You know when things are changing, it is new and exciting but it is also scary. We, as a family, are going through some very big changes. Some things were meant to harm us, but it is through our faith in Jesus that has turned around for good. Things that were good, are way better than we expected. But during all of the chaos and sometimes confusion, you wonder how you are going to do it. I know that through staying connected to the Word of God, it brings me peace. And I know that it is through the Holy Spirit that Jesus, Himself, calms the storm raging in me. I can't do it, I can promise you that. And since Jesus brought me near the blood and I accepted Him as my Lord and Savior, He has brought me under the blood. He is now my peace. Ephesians 2:14-18. 14-- For He Himself is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation, See, I told you. This scripture says it all. Jesus, Himself, is my peace. He broke down the wall. He took off the chains that bind us. 15- having abolished in His flesh, the enmity, that is, the law of commandments contained in ordinances, so as to create in Himself one new man from the two, thus making peace, He took the Old and the New and made one. Somethings, He did away with and somethings He kept. But the two are now one. 16- and that He might reconcile them both to God in one body through the cross, thereby putting to death the enmity. He is showing us, He is the way. He is the truth. No one but Jesus could have taken the Old and the New and made one law for all. He took it upon Himself so that none may perish. We are one body with Christ as the Head of that body. 17- And He came and preached peace to you who were afar off and to those who were near. Now I know that we will not have perfect peace until Jesus comes and reigns. But could we not have peace within ourselves and then when we have peace within ourselves, that pours out on the world. Because we learn to let somethings go. We learn that we don't have to have the last word and we don't even always have to defend ourselves. Sometimes silence is good. When Jesus is our peace, nothing can truly upset us. We just let Him fight the battles and we are the messengers that He uses. And again, Jesus wants to be everyone's peace. Is He yours? 18- For through Him we both have access by ONE Spirit to the Father. See Jesus! Be Jesus! Repent, refresh, revive! Rise up children of God, rise up!
