Arrow Jesus the Source of Peace

Jesus the Source of Peace
Colossians 1:15-20
Before we knew Jesus Christ, our life was full of godlessness and wickednessówe had self-seeking ways and stubborn, unrepentant hearts (Rom. 1:18; 2:5, 8). Like our strife-filled world, we clamored for peace and tried to find it, but our efforts failed.
When we came to faith in the Savior, all of that changed. We were rescued from the dominion of darkness and brought into Christís kingdom (Col 1:13). Every one of our sinsópast, present, and futureówas forgiven. Divine justice was satisfied by Christís sacrifice, and Godís wrath upon us was removed. We became a new creation, washed clean by Jesusí blood (2 Cor. 5:17).
Now that sinís power over us has been broken, we can live in accord with God. He sent His Holy Spirit to be our personal guide in this new life, helping each of us experience Christís peace (Rom. 8:6). We also can look forward to an eternity spent in heaven, where righteousness, tranquility, and joy abound (Rom. 14:17).
The story of the prodigal sonís return is a picture of our reconciliation with the Lord (Luke 15:11-24). The son had chosen to leave his father, living instead to please himself. Repentant, he eventually returned home; his father joyfully greeted him and forgave him, and there was harmony between them. God has done all this for us.
Our unity with the heavenly Father came at a great priceóthe sacrifice of His only Son. Christ gave His life for us so that we could be reconciled to God (Col. 1:20). Christian lives are to testify that Jesus is the source of our peace. Does your life communicate this message?

I wish there was a bigger word than thank you.....I feel sometimes thank you is not enough when praising God, but it’s all I got
