Scripture of the Day - January 5, 2012

John 14:27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give to you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled neither let it be afraid.

Word peace...everybody is crying out for world peace...but we never get world peace. People have been at war with each other ever since Cain killed Abel. James so clearly points out that wars come from inside us because of our lusts...lust for power, lust for dominance, lust for control and the list of lusts goes on. Today the world is sitting on a powder keg that is on the brink of exploding and when it does it will destroy 1/4 of mankind. This world cannot give peace. True peace comes from Jesus. He has overcome the world and those who receive Him can also overcome the world. Those who receive Him can have true peace, not the fickle fleeting peace that the world has to offer but the deep everlasting peace that only God can give. If you really want peace, let Jesus come into your heart.
