What’s In November?
What can be said about Jesus? Everything. But above and beyond all other descriptions, it must be said that Jesus was and is the ultimate peacemaker.
He came to bind up the broken-hearted God. Often we think that means that Jesus made everyone feel good, or that a peacemaker is suppose to make everyone feel good, but that is not true. Jesus did make some people feel better about their situations, but not always. Some he made feel deeply convicted to the point where they were enraged.
We must understand that being a peacemaker means making peace with God first. The ultimate goal in your life is to make sure that you are doing and saying what makes God pleased. By tending to the concerns of the Father you will find that you are a natural peacemaker, because when the Father is at peace, the world is at peace.
It doesn’t matter how gradual the process may be or how others may see it. The stitching may be uncomfortable, it may even hurt, but at the end of the day, a shattered people are mended back together into a whole piece with God, simply by obeying his commandments. If you want peace, remember that God’s peace is the only peace that earnestly matters.
