“…for He Himself is our peace…” – Ephesians 2:14
This verse capulates the entire glorious Gospel of God. Jesus Himself is our peace.
Beyond the teachings and miracles. Above the good purposes God has planned for you to do. More than anything else, the cross and life of Jesus Christ today is our peace.
God’s war with humanity ended at the cross. Jesus brings peace. In Him, humanity finds freedom. No more disturbance or oppression from the effects of sin. There is only real forgiveness and rest for their souls. Jesus provides safety in the mind and heart that no power on earth can steal away. He watches and cares for His investment. The peace of God reconciles people to God and restores human dignity, allowing humanity to live again.
“He Himself is our peace.” Everything Jesus is. Everything He has done and everything He is doing gives us peace. It is not a peace for tomorrow. “The gospel of Christ… is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes.” (Romans 1:16) It is powerful today to everyone who believes today. He is alive and able to give us peace; power-filled peace for today!
Because He lives, I can face tomorrow.
Because He lives, All fear is gone.
And I know, He holds the future
And life is worth the living just because He lives.
Jesus has done it. We can be forgiven today and find salvation in Jesus Christ. It is guaranteed. “He Himself is our peace.”
