II. New Testament Peace – To set as one again
1. Peace with God
That’s the vertical dimension.
While God loves us and cherishes us, He is filled with indignation because of our sinfulness.
We don’t deserve this peace to men on whom His favor rests.
Jesus is the good news of great joy for all the people.
2. Peace of God
This takes place internally.
We will experience this peace in proportion to the room we give the Holy Spirit in our lives.
3. Peace with others
That’s peace horizontally.
Determine right now to be a planter of peace not a sower of strife.
4. Peace for others
This is the proclamation of the peace in the Gospel.
The only way for people to have peace with God, to have peace inside, and to be at peace with others, is for people like us to tell them about the gospel of peace.
