Peace, Joy and Righteousness

John 14:27

“Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful.

1 Peter 1:8-9

“Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, for you are receiving the end result of your faith, the salvation of your souls.”

2 Corinthians 5:21

“God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.”

God through Jesus has given us peace, joy and righteousness. These three are God’s greatest gifts and they are bestowed upon those who believe that Jesus is the Son of God.

The world or those who reject Jesus do whatever possible to show us that they too are happy and at peace. Their peace is momentary at best and usually is displayed in temporary riches that they cannot take with them after this vapor of a life is over.

Spend time reflecting on all of the positive changes, that your decision to follow and embrace him, has had on your life and the life of those who surround you both now and in the future.

It’s all about Jesus!
