42 Seconds with 30 Sayings of Jesus

OCT 22

I have told you these things so that in Me you may have peace.  In this world you will have trouble.  But take heart!  I have overcome the world.  John 16:33

Jesus and lambPeace.  True peace.  Inner peace.  It is something I truly desire.  Like you, I’ve looked for it in places, people and things of this world yet they’ve left me dissatisfied.  I’ve looked for it deep within my own heart yet I’ve seen much emptiness there.  I’ve looked for it in the wisdom of this age, yet the foolishness of this world becomes evident.  I’ve found temporary peace, time and time again.  But its only when Jesus is the source of peace in my life that I’ve found the peace that lasts.  In Christ, there is true, lasting peace.  It the peace that passes understanding. It is only found in Jesus.  Then, with the peace of Jesus, I can appreciate the places, people and things of this world properly.

Our society lacks peace.  It also can seem so powerful and overwhelming at times.  Yet, just as comforting it is to know that in Christ we have peace, we also know that Jesus has overcome this world.  Through Jesus’ life, death and resurrection, Jesus has overcome all the powers of this world and the spiritual powers that stand against Him.  As the slogan goes, “No Christ, No Peace.  Know Christ, Know Peace.”  For a great, classic song about peace, check out Rich Mullins, “Maker of Noses”  https://youtu.be/hdspZ8Dexv0  Let me now what you think.

One thought on “42 Seconds with 30 Sayings of Jesus

  1. Thank you for this post. Peace can elude me when I’m looking even the tiniest tick off of His true-north mark.

    We often don’t stop to think of that is made by the hand of God, we just expect the things to which we are accustomed to always be present; even noses!

    I’ve listened to Rich Mullins for years but I have never heard this song! Thank you for sharing it and pressing us back to peace in Jesus’.
