"THE PRINCE OF PEACE"
Remember when America was a place of Peace and Security?
When a child could play outside after dark? When our homes were considered
a safe place from the world? When our schools were safe, and the worst
offense was chewing gum in class?
What Has Happened to Peaceful America? Today, reports
of our soldiers being killed by violence in foreign lands has become
a regular news event -- nothing special or unusual but common news.
We have young folks killing each other in gang fights, over drugs, etc.
etc. -- Drive-by shootings -- Divorces in almost 50% of our marriages
--High officials in large corporations accused of stealing the money
of investors -- children killing children, as well as teachers in our
schools. The list could go on and on --in politics --business --police
--churches --our courts are full and not always honest. Unrest and violence
is prevalent in almost every area of our nation.
"There is no peace. saith the LORD, unto the wicked."
What then IS the answer? You have seen the sign "CHRIST
IS THE ANSWER" and surely it is true. If your church has drifted
away as so many have, until it is nothing more than a social gathering
or entertainment center for the kids (whether 5 yrs old or 75), then
restore Jesus Christ to His rightful place and send forth His Word from
the pulpit. Every meeting must surely be Christ-centered. Every Christian
home must be centered around Christ. Every life that would be successful
must of a surety be centered on Jesus Christ and His Word. Jesus Christ
must be honored and His Word faithfully adhered to, for, as stated in
Isaiah 9: 6, He is the Prince of Peace.
Is your heart asking, "How can I enter into this
Peace?" Jesus said in John 3:7, "Ye must be born again."
You will never have personal peace until you realize
your lost condition and trust Jesus Christ for salvation. Then you can
truly begin to keep Jesus Christ in His rightful place in your work,
your thoughts, your recreation, your marriage, your church, etc. etc.
and you can pray for your nation and its leadership from the President
