Everyone seeks love, joy, and peace. All that people strive for is part of that search . April 21, 2010 Be always mindful of God ; He is the Source of love, joy, and peace. A blessed life
2 Peter 3 1 This second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you; in both which I stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance : 2 That ye may be mindful of the Words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the Commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Savior: Old Testament
Every Word of God The Word of God teaches us the Way of God. God's Way is the only blessed Way . 1 John 1 3-4 That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with His Son Jesus Christ. And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full .
John 14 27 Peace I leave with you, My peace I give unto you : not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled (anxiety) , neither let it be afraid (timid; afraid) . Colossians 3 14-15 And above all these things put on charity (agapao) , which is the bond of perfectness. And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful .
Romans 8 38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God , which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. We know with assurance that God loves us . The Creator of the Universe loves me ! How could I need or want anything else?
If I am constantly in remembrance of the Love of God for me , Constantly filled with joy that's not dependent on circumstances, And have absolutely no worry or fear in my mind,
3-4 Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts , and saying, Where is the promise of His coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation . People who ask foolish questions and make foolish statements such as these, Are not sincerely seeking Truth. They just want what they want.
5 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the Word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: 6 Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: Things have not been the same since creation. We have True Record of massive change s that have already taken place.
7 But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same Word are kept in store , reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. Judgment upon this sinful world is coming . Whether scoffers believe it or not. Romans 5 8-9 But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him.
Judgment is coming upon all sinners who reject Jesus as Savior and Lord. Jesus is coming back to receive unto Himself those who have accepted Him as Savior and Lord. We must be always reminded of the Truths of the Word of God, lest we let them slip. That's the Purpose of teaching and preaching, and of individual study of the Bible.
Psalms 37 7 Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way , because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.
For the man or woman who has rejected the love, and peace, and joy of Christian living, There can never be enough. 1 Timothy 6 6-8 But godliness with contentment is great gain . For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. And having food and raiment let us be therewith content. Let us believe and practice the Word of God. Love, Joy, and Peace is our blessing . What else could anybody want?
