PEACE, ALL WE NEED
We all need peace in our life. For a happy living, Peace is all that we need. We all are peace-seekers and never want to live in a way that we never imagined to be in (a messy situation). Very often we stumble upon situations that seize our inner peace, affect us on the inside and we end up getting discouraged, disappointed and so helpless that we end up forgetting our own self.
People are always in pursuit of peace. They always try to find the best possible way which makes them feel cozy and comfortable; sometimes it maybe in a correct path but many such get trapped in wrong stuffs such as going to bars, wrong networking, gambling, smoking, adultery, smuggling, etc and slowly it becomes an addiction and this starts to spoil their inner peace. Today majority of people in Human Race are terribly affected by this No-Peace factor.
Many families, relationships end up sour by not having this all important peace element. Broken families, marriage failures, people living apart because they are not happy, people suffering from terrible diseases, failure in studies and no hope for a better future. Sometimes, petty issues and just a word spoken in a bad temper ends up breaking relations, ending up forgetting those commitments and happy moments they spent together. Such a fragile world we live on!!
Where there is peace, happiness finds it's way to dwell in. Sadly, that happiness we rarely find these days.
So how and where do we find real peace? The one and only answer in this peace-void world is JESUS CHRIST. He is the same yesterday, today and forevermore. Jesus declares in the gospel of John 14:27 "Peace I leave with you; my peace i give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid."
Nobody can promise to give someone something which he himself does not possess. Here Jesus shows that He surely is the Prince of Peace and whomsoever reaches out to Him to receive this true eternal peace will surely find true Peace in Jesus. He is our Messiah and a hope in midst of our storms in life. He is ALPHA AND OMEGA - THE BEGINNING AND THE END. What God has started in your life, He will bring it into fulfillment. Just Trust Him. Let go of all your anxieties and worries because He truly cares for you.
Here’s a key - never argue or criticize, rather learn to neglect it and let go. When you keep calm on the inside, things automatically reflects on the outside. We have to stop expecting from others and rather we can start making out peace with one another. Holy Bible says: "Blessed are the peace makers, for they will be called children of God." (Matthew 5:9) Jesus never argued or criticized, there where situations where He could have lost his cool instead he was very calm and wherever He went He spread out peace and love all around.
We can never overcome evil through evil but only by love and by doing this we are bringing peace to our lives. May we start to reflect this glorious Jesus-nature 'In us and through us' in this world void of peace. We are children of God and our savior Jesus is the Prince of Peace.
Finally never forget the Greatest commandment of all - LOVE ONE ANOTHER !
