I didnt always have the Peace I have today and I pray my Peace will be stronger tommorow … for true lasting inner Peace has to come from The Who Not the “do” and The Who is in the journey.
“For he himself is our peace, who has made the two groups one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility, by setting aside in his flesh the law with its commands and regulations. His purpose was to create in himself one new humanity out of the two, thus making peace, … Ephesians 2:14-15.
The children of Israel had to walk out of slavery with its fear and oppression … and so do we… but Wow what a journey.
Religion has always been based on the fear of displeasing the gods. This idea has caused everything from wars to human sacrafices.
But The God Who Is Love beyond human comprehension is different … all He wants is to drop All the barriers like “law with its commands and regulations” and allow a “new humanity” for both Jew and Gentile to be Permanently established.
The Peace that this establishes happens as we release the expectations we think God has on us and live in The Love and Acceptance we “Faith” He has for us. Yes Faith is a verb and as we Rest in it it grows, as it grows so grows my Peace.
The important thing to see here is that God through Christ and His sacrafice destroyed the law for All who believe He “Finished” it. For those who dont believe, “the law” or “the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility” is still very much there … would you like to start to dismantle that wall? If so click the link below …
