God Sent Jesus (7)

Read a newspaper and see what is happening around the world. Watch the news on TV. Soon you will learn that there is not much peace on earth. People want the kind of peace that brings freedom from war and fighting.

Yesterday we learned that God sent Jesus so that we can have a right relationship with Him. God also sent Jesus to bring us peace. But God’s kind of peace is not freedom from war. God’s peace happens because we have the right kind of relationship with Him. When someone becomes a Christian, he is a new person. The old way of living is gone. Everything is new in Jesus. This kind of relationship brings us peace with God. Paul talked about this in 2 Corinthians 5:18. “All this is from God. Through Christ, God made peace between himself and us. And God gave us the work of bringing people into peace with him.”

Through Jesus, we can have true peace. And when we experience this peace, we have the responsibility to show other people how they can have God’s peace, too.

Look for opportunities today to tell people about Jesus. Show them how they can have peace and a right kind of relationship with God.
