Sermons On Peace : Jesus Christ - The Prince Of Peace
John 14:27 Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you...
The peace of Jesus. What a wonderful gift!
Yet, many of us do not fully comprehend how previliged we truly are to receive this great inheritance.
While some might think that the peace Jesus gave us is merely restriced to the calmness of spirit and soundness of mind, God's Word declares that there's more, far more.
In fact, the Hebrew word for peace, 'Shalom', encompasses every area of our lives!
Prosperity, health, total well-being and much more are all part of Jesus' gift to us through His perfect work on the Cross.
What's more, Jesus didn't just give us any shalom, He gave us His Shalom. The same peace through which He healed the sick and raised the dead. The same peace through which He calmed the raging storm into still waters. The same peace through which He provided for thousands of hungry people at once.
Indeed, everywhere He went, perfect Shalom followed our lovely Jesus. It must have been such a wonderful sight to behold. The blind see, the lame walk, the oppressed rejoice. His very existence brought a peace that surpasses understanding to all around Him.
This is exactly the same peace that Jesus wishes for us to receive. By giving up His life on the Cross, Christ absorbed all the sufferings and the effects of sin onto Himself. In exchange, He bequeathed to us His perfect peace, if only we'd receive it.
Isn't He great? The most precious gift of Heaven, willingly came down to suffer for us, only to redeem us from the curse of sin and bless us with His complete wholeness.
The more we learn to understand what Jesus did for us, the more we'll begin to see His Shalom Peace manifest in our daily lives.
With this in mind, we've collected a series of sermons on peace below, so you can immerse yourself in Christ's shalom and experience the peace that surpasses understanding in your daily life.
