Now the God of peace make you perfect in every good work, to do His will, working in you that which is well-pleasing in His sight. – Heb. 13:20,21.
Be ready to do every good work. – Titus 3:1.
“God of Peace” says a lot. Romans, Greeks, Huns, and Saxons all had Gods of war, but two thousand years ago something happened that caused civilization to turn from worshiping mythical Gods to a single God and a God of peace not war. Mankind didn’t stop warring, and we didn’t stop invoking God’s name from time to time to justify war, but pretty much Peace, although elusive, is still much sought by all nations and faiths.
We can’t all work directly toward world peace. We are not all diplomats, peace-keepers, or missionaries, but we work toward peace in our own way. We begin by inviting God’s presence in our heart and soul, and seek to see him in all things. When we do, we start to feel a peaceful spirit that brings order and serenity to our minds, and patience and mercy to our hearts. The drudgery that we used to call work suddenly brings glory to our spirit and gives voice to our individual song.
The God of Peace awaits us all. Many believe he came 2000 years ago in the form of Jesus. Whether you can go there or not, the God of Peace awaits your call to be transformed, just as he transformed the world long ago.
