An End To All Hostilities – Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional December 3rd

(Jesus Brought Us Into Peace And Union With The Father)

TO THE BIBLE: John 14:27 NIV
“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”

It’s my heart’s desire that people all around the world fully grasp the incredible significance of the Lord Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection.

Before His sacrificial act on our behalf, the Bible tells us that we were “…without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world” (Ephesians 2:12), which means we were enemies of God.

But praise God! Romans 5:10 says He reconciled us to Himself by the death of Jesus Christ.

Ephesians 2:13-18 says, “…Now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ.

For He Himself is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation, having abolished in His flesh the enmity, that is, the law of commandments contained in ordinances, so as to create in Himself one new man from the two, thus making peace, and that He might reconcile them both to God in one body through the cross, thereby putting to death the enmity. And He came and preached peace to you who were afar off and to those who were near. For through Him we both have access by one Spirit to the Father.” Hallelujah!

Jesus paid the price and brought us into peace and union with the Father. No wonder Paul says in Romans 5:1, “Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.”

The word “peace” is from the Greek “eirene.” It describes an end to hostilities. It means to be set at one.

Through Christ Jesus, you’ve been set at one with God; you’ve come home in Him! Isaiah 53:5 NIV says, “…The punishment that brought us peace was on him….” There’s no need to live in fear of judgement; Jesus has already taken the punishment for your sins. Hallelujah!

Dear Father, I thank you for the message of reconciliation that’s been committed to my trust. Through me, many in my world and the regions beyond are coming to the knowledge of God and into their inheritance in Christ; they’re coming into the life of peace and union with you, free from condemnation, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
