Topic:- Why The World Lacks Peace
Text:- John 3:12-21
John 3:19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
Absence of war, Terrorism and other forms is insecurity do not necessarily mean peace is relative term. In the Spiritual perspective, no peace, without Christ. This is to say that if God is not somewhere, peace cannot be there! No Wonder, there cannot be peace for the Wicked (godless, ungodly) (Isaiah 48:22 There is no peace, saith the LORD, unto the wicked. Isaiah 57:21 There is no peace, saith my God, to the wicked). God is our peace (Ephesians 2:14 For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us), and His only begotten son, Jesus Christ, is The Prince of Peace(Isaiah 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace).
Obviously, this world is devoid of true peace in all sphere: economy, religion, Family, politics and education, just to mention but a few. Every nation of the world gets its own share of the turmoil rocking the world, economically, religiously and politically. Bloodshed has become so rampant. Graphics of gruesome murders are no surprises to us any longer! There is a reason for this. Since the world has consistently rejected the Prince of Peace, Himself, ( Our Lord Jesus Christ), It has no choice than to make do with forgetting about anything that has to do with true peace (Isaiah 48:22 There is no peace, saith the LORD, unto the wicked).
In the real sense, if you are not at peace with the God( not reconciled to Him) you cannot have Peace of God (Romans 5:1 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ). The Prince of Peace came to the world, but He was rejected by those if the world (John 1:10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not). He brought light, but people prefer darkness (John 3:19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil). He opened His arms , but nobody looked to His merciful side. So, peace, evading our world , is justified (Isaiah 59:8 The way of peace they know not; and there is no judgment in their goings: they have made them crooked paths: whosoever goeth therein shall not know peace)!
We can receive true lasting peace in our live, today, if we reconcile with our Creator, through our Lord Jesus Christ (Isaiah 26:3 Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee). Then, immediately begin to share the message of Peace(Jesus) with others (John 4:28 The woman then left her waterpot, and went her way into the city, and saith to the men, 4:29 Come, see a man, which told me all things that ever I did: is not this the Christ? 4:30 Then they went out of the city, and came unto him). You can't imagine the blessing that will follow.
1. Do you want peace?
2. Do you know who can give Peace.
1. O God of Peace, speak your Peace to the raging storms in my life, marriage, ministry, business and career, in Jesus name.
2. Lord, I rededicate my all to you; let your Your Peace permeate every aspect of my life.
3. O God of Peace, crush the agents of opposition against Your programme, Nation and Church and put them under the feet of Your people in the Land, according to Your word in (Rom. 16:20).
