As long as there is unrepented sin in our life: there is no peace. If we want peace, we must make peace with God — acceptance and obedience of His Son Jesus Christ — if we want to come to the Father it must be through the Son (John 14:6).
Saying we will do so is not the same as doing it.
Peace WITH God while Under Pressure
Spiritual peace is ours ONLY when we have a right relationship with God through Christ Jesus (Rom 5:1).
How Can I Have Peace? (John 14:6)
- There is a WAY to Spiritual Peace (Matt 7:13-14). Choose the difficult, narrow way and not the broad, easy way. People headed down the broad narrow way are "feeling just fine" and don't even know where they are headed.
- I must find the TRUTH that leads to Spiritual Peace (John 16:33) — we need to find the TRUTH that leads to the WAY.
- Spiritual Peace is not a destination, it is a LIFE (Isa 26:2-3) — peace is not a goal or objective, it is a lifestyle integrated into our daily routine. It is a journey. We don't have to wait for peace, we can't have it now if we want it.
