NEED PEACE?

You could be ranked #1 in the Forbes billionaires list for being the richest person on the planet and not have peace. Inarguably, peace the world offers doesn’t compare to the peace that’s found only in Christ. Walter A. Elwell wrote, “The biblical concept of peace is larger than that and rests heavily on the Hebrew root slm, which means “to be complete” or “to be sound.” The verb conveys both a dynamic and a static meaning”to be complete or whole” or “to live well.” Contrary to Puff Daddy’s 1997 hit single; ‘It’s NOT all about the Benjamin’s…. baby.’ In John 14:27 Jesus said, “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives….” You can’t buy peace and the only way to acquire it, is to believe in the One that died so that we could possess it during our temporary stay on this planet.
