Interesting to me: people know about what they’re going to read here. But how many still chase after things it won’t last, only because they want to avoid God.
The definition of true peace does not lend itself to the opinions of Man. True peace is not the absence of turmoil. Therefore you can’t buy it with ignorance.
True peace does not come to us by diligent ritual. Even if all things went well for the perfectionist, what peace he thinks he has can be destroyed by a speck of dust.
And the one who thinks they will gain peace by not involving themselves in the difficult things of God, is undone by the simple miraculous beauty of a butterfly.
True peace has one origin and one substance. To gain it we must appear in the fire of condemnation that radiates from the Living God’s throne. True peace will always come dressed in the humiliation of our own eternal weakness.
True peace can only be had by learning to trust Jesus in everything. Every other opinion regarding peace will be shattered.
There is no institution on earth where you can go to begin your journey into true peace. In this, even the church can’t help you. The Church can only point to the One who is willing and able to give you Life.
Where you need to go is the last place you want to go, but the absolute place you will arrive; the throne of the God who made you.
