We Can All Experience Grace And Peace

Kindness and calmness… a person totally at peace with God and doing what they believe God wants them to do. That’s what Paul prayed the church at Corinth would experience. He opened the letter to the Corinthians with, “Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.”
The Lord wants us all to have grace and peace. The word “grace” is the word “charis” in the greek. The word means “grace, favor or kindness.” So grace is marked by kindness.
Think about that.. people can be very unkind. Someone has said that we shouldn’t be surprised when lost people like… lost people. They are not Christians. They have not experienced forgiveness. But Christians have experienced forgiveness We have been forgiven of our sins. Our lives should be marked by kindness.
Paul also prayed that we might have peace. He said “grace and peace to you..”
Do you have peace? Are you at peace? Do you have peace with God? Has there been a time in your life when you trusted Jesus as your Savior?
Do you have the peace of God? Are you doing what God wants you to do or, is there an inner conflict that you battle that doesn’t give you peace about what you are doing?
We can all experience grace and peace. God wants us to experience it.
Grace and peace…. kindness and calmness. Is your life marked by kindness? Are you at peace with God and your fellow man? You can be… Jesus wants us to have that.
