Peace, hope, and love…

"Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have PEACE with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand.  And we boast in the HOPE of the glory of God.  Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, HOPE.  And HOPE does not put us to shame, because God's LOVE has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us."   Romans 5:1-5

 

We are searchers.  We were born searchers.  We search for so many things in this life.  Our search changes from season to season.  One search that is the same for every person is the search for purpose…for meaning…for LIFE.  Some people think that life is about a spouse or children.  Some people think that life is about a job or money.  Some people think that life is about simply having a good time.  If we are not careful, we will find ourselves merely existing rather than truly living.  God's Word tells us that life is only found in one place, actually one Person…JESUS!  In John 14:6, Jesus said, "I am the way and the truth and the LIFE."  He also said in John 10:10, "I have come so that you may have LIFE and have it to the full."  There are other things we search for, too.  We search for peace, hope, and love.  With Jesus as Lord and Savior, all the peace, hope, and love you could ever want is available.  God's gift of the Holy Spirit in our lives leads us to peace and to hope and to love that not only impacts us, it also impacts others.  Don't just settle for existing and endless searching.  Live LIFE the way God created you to live.  Real LIFE comes through JESUS, and peace and hope and love are the results:)
