Benefits of Having Peace

Peace: freedom from disturbance; tranquility.

I believe everyone wants to have peace in some form or fashion. There is nothing like enjoying peace and quiet, especially when you have a chance to get away from everything in your daily life.

No matter what is going on, we can have peace. We can have peace if we know where true peace comes from, and that is God. “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 This is Jesus speaking in this verse, and we see see that peace is through Him. Christ so clearly states that in Him is peace and in the world is tribulation.

Have you ever wondered why you are going through rough times. It seems that life is just full of storms, maybe you have too much world in your life and not enough Christ in your life. Christ will bring peace to your life if you let Him!

How do we gain peace through Christ. Simple, have a relationship with Him. Read His Word. Talk to Him daily. Serve Him with your life.

The true peace that comes from Christ has some benefits to it.

Peace through Christ will give protection to your mental and spiritual well-being. “And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:7 We see here that the peace of God will keep our heart and our mind through Christ Jesus. We are weak, we are defenseless in this world if we don’t have Christ. If we are a saved, child of Christ, having a close relationship with Him, we can have the peace that will protect us from the attacks of Satan and the world. In the following verses of Philippians 4, we see that we are given instruction on how to think and what to think on. We are given instruction on being content. Then we also see that we should have confidence in Christ as He will help us in all things.

Peace through Christ will give a passive spirit when wronged. “Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them.” Psalms 119:165 I don’t read this verse as a verse that says that we should never get offended, I read it as a verse that says that when we are wronged by family or friends or whoever, we won’t be offended. I believe that we should be offended when the world pushes sin and evil and wickedness down our throats, but when someone says something bad about us or gossips about us or hurts our feelings, we shouldn’t get offended. We should be passive when it comes to petty things in life. We let the littlest things offend us and get us off track of serving God! We need get in the Word of God and love His Word and we will learn how to forgive and forget like He does, and we won’t be offended over every little thing that comes our way!

We need peace through Christ if we are going to live a life for Him. “For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.” Romans 8:6 Our thoughts, our actions, our talk, everything we do should be based off of the Bible, we need to be spiritually minded if we are ever going to have peace. If we let the world, the flesh and the devil rule our minds, we will be confused, we will have trouble, and ultimately death…whether it be physical death or spiritual death!

You can have peace! Live your life following Christ and His Word and you will find peace!

Being A Confident Christian

“Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:”

Philippians 1:6

Last night, my wife and I were talking about the subject of being confident and what it means when it comes to serving the Lord. Then today, this verse shows up as the verse of the day and I got to thinking some more about the subject of being confident.

God has call each one of us to a good work. He has something that He wants each one of us to fulfill and accomplish in our lives. Paul is telling us that if we have been called, we can be confident in knowing that God will help us carry out that work.

I have a few areas that I believe that we should be confident in, and have confidence in Christ that He will help us in these areas.

The first is Salvation. I am confident in Christ that He will save me if I put my faith and trust in Him. When I accepted Christ as my Saviour, I was unsure about His power and ability to save me. I had complete and total confidence in His Word that what He said He would do, He would do! We can have confidence in salvation through Jesus Christ!

Next we can have confidence in our Soul winning. We can have confidence in telling others about the saving power of Jesus Christ! It worked for us, why won’t it work for someone else. Telling other people about Jesus Christ and how He alone can save them is the number responsibility of every single Christian! There is no need to be scared or intimidated by the world, being a witness is a good work, and we are to be confident in what we are called to do!

We can have confidence in our Service. I like to think that being a soul winner and being a servant are two different aspects of the Christian life, yet we are called to do both. If God has called you to serve in some area of church, and I believe there is a place for everyone, you can have confidence that God will help you in that service, in that good work. Too many Christians sit idly by for whatever reasons, but I think one of the big reasons is they lack confidence. We have to realize that whatever God has called us to do, He has equipped us to perform that good work, and we can find confidence in Him.

Then lastly, our Standards are something we can take confidence in. I look around and I see a lot of Christians giving in to worldly fashion and worldly living. They have lost confidence in the standards that God has given to us in His Word. We are called to look different, be different, act different and talk different than the worldly crowd. When I see Christians that are dropping their standards, I see people that have lost confidence in God and what He can do if they live according to His Word. Be peculiar, be confident in being different!

Whoever you are, wherever you are, whatever you are doing, you can find confidence in Christ to fulfill His will for your life!

What Is Your Song?

We heard a great message the other night on things to add to your walk with God. These things were all biblical points taken straight from the Bible itself.

Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.”

Ephesians 5:19-21

From these verses we see the points that Paul shares:

  1. Speak to yourself a psalm.
  2. Speak to yourself a hymn.
  3. Speak to yourself a spiritual song.
  4. Give thanks.
  5. Submit to one another.

If we can add these steps to our Bible reading and prayer life, our walk and relationship with God will grow immensely.

Music plays an important part in our lives. Music can guide our soul and emotions. It is imperative that we listen to good, godly music in our daily lives!

What are you listening to, today?

My favorite gospel song of all time is “I Stand Redeemed.” What is yours?
