THE SECRET OF GENUINE PEACE John Wesley, one day, was travelling on sea by a ship.
While on the sea, the ship started to sink – it was on the verge of capsizing.
As a result, everyone was running helter skater including John Wesley himself in the ship.
As Wesley was desperately running for a refuge, he saw some group of people who, despite the danger on the sea, were calm as if nothing was happening.
He went to them and asks them immediately, ”What is the secret of your peace?” They retorted happily, ”Our secret is Jesus Christ.”
Wesley was flabbergasted, ”Ah, so don’t I have Jesus Christ?” By God’s grace, the ship did not capsize.
After returning home, John Wesley allowed Jesus to be in his heart; from then, he had peace like a river flowing through his soul.
Friends, let me ask you the same question, ”Do you have peace?” If yes, ”What is the secret of your peace?” Do you have peace because of your money, family, fame, wealth, social status…? If yes, then, you are deceiving yourself, these things cannot give you peace.
The Prince of Peace, King Jesus is the secret of genuine peace.
Jesus says, ”Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you.
Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” Jn 9:27.
His peace is not problem- free peace but peace in the midst of difficulties with the assurance that you ”can do all things through Christ who strengthens you.” ‘
‘Verily, verily, I say unto you. That ye shall weep and lament, but the world shall rejoice: and ye shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be turned into joy.”
Oh yes, ”Jesus is the entire world to me, my life, my joy, my all;
He is my strength from day to day, without Him I would fall.
When I am sad to Him I go, No other one can cheer me so; when I am sad He makes me glad, He’s my friend.”
JESUS LOVES YOU AND ME!!! CHEER UP
