Peace with God is a new kind of life that gives rest to your soul during good and bad condition of life. Peace is so precious that money cannot buy, but don’t worry you can get it free!
Today’s message elaborates the significance of peace and how to possess it.
Before I met Christ, I had many friends of different high classic categories but I couldn’t find peace in their midst. My money could not give me peace. My beautiful properties compounded my fears. I attend church services but I couldn’t enjoy that joy which can give rest to my soul…
But when I changed my orientation about life, I made peace with God and my life is full of rest till this moment.
5 Major Ways to Make Peace with God
1. Trust Jesus Christ as your Saviour
Take your Christian life to the next higher level. Boycott hypocrisy and surrender your total life to Jesus. Read about Jesus in the Bible and Obey His instructions.
Jesus says: “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” (John 14:27)
2. Confess Secret Sins
Stop given excuses for your wrong doings. Forgive your offenders and go on your knee with a broken heart to seek God’s forgiveness for your sins.
“…having made peace through the blood of His cross. And you, who once were alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works. Yet now He has reconciled in the body of His flesh through death, to present you holy, and blameless, and above reproach in His sight…” (Colossians 1:20-22)
3. Build Personal Relationship
The best way to make peace with God is to set up a daily fellowship with Him. Make some minutes or hours available for worship, prayers and Bible studies. The LORD would always visit you. I followed this step strictly and I had a spectacular experience with the LORD.
“You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.” (Isaiah 26:3)
4. Life of Holiness
Log out from the school of thought that the grace of God neutralises your active sinful life. Hate sin and stay off from it! You can make peace with God by living a holy life.
“And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to all the congregation of the children of Israel, and say to them: ‘You shall be holy, for I the LORD your God am holy.” (Leviticus 19:1-2)
5. Love your Neighbour
You can make peace with God by helping the poor, preaching the Gospel to the unbelievers and be at peace with your neighbour. This step pleases the Heart of the LORD and He would reward you.
When you accept Jesus Christ, who is the Prince of Peace into your life then it becomes easy for you to make peace with God. Your Faith in the Lord, Obedience to His word and your holy lifestyle are paramount factors for your peaceful life.
