How To Be A Man Of Peace?

“Peace maker, Godly worker, Word keeper, Created in my likeness, My child, that is who you are”

If you are familiar with the song lyrics “waymaker” then you know. This would be one of the lyrics God sings to us.

Moving on, we are created to be peacemakers. Believers full of the peace of God. This peace will be misunderstood by carnal Christians and non believers as war sometimes. But, it’s in our regenerated spiritual DNA. This is a peace given to us by Jesus when we accepted Him as Lord and Saviour (John 14:27).

We are children of God when we walk in peace and make peace with others. Often many naive believers think it’s okay to compromise the word of God to please a person or not “hurt” them. Does God allow that? No. In Matthew 10:34, Jesus makes it clear that the word will divide families and near and dear ones we have in this world.

Selfish man creates division to destroy by using manipulative words.
A godly man sows peace to save the soul, even if it means there may be problems now. This is a hard saying. Yet, it is the truth that can only be understood by faith based on the word of God.

Who is a Peace maker?

1. Child of God (Matthew 5:9)
2. Spiritually minded (Romans 8:6) (Philippians 4:7)
3. Cheerful (John 16:33)
4. Thankful (Colossians 3:15)
5. Soul winner (Ephesians 6:15)
6. Trusts in God (Isaiah 26:3)
7. Loves God’s righteousness (James 3:18)
8. Believe in the power of His blood (Isaiah 53:5)
9. Love enemies (Jeremiah 29:7)
10. Doer of the Word (Philippians 4:9) (James 1:22)

There are a lot more ways to be a peacemaker.

Remember, Jesus did not leave property or any perishable item for us but His awesome Peace that passes all human understanding.

Maranatha, praise God and Amen!

7 Steps To Welcoming Christ Home! (Part-2)

 July 15, 2020 Author: hephzibahgarden

And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up, and saw him, and said unto him, Zacchaeus, make haste, and come down; for to day I must abide at thy house. Luke‬ ‭19:5‬

On the backdrop of Zacchaeus’ life we saw the first three ways of how we can invite Jesus into our home/life. Here’s the second part on the same topic. Let’s take a look:

  • Need of a Pure Conscience – Holding the mystery of the faith in a pure conscience. 1 Timothy‬ ‭3:9‬. Without purity no one can see God. Also, to have Jesus come and dwell in our hearts, we need to have a pure conscience. How can we receive purity in our conscience? By allowing the Blood of Jesus to wash away the filthiness and iniquities of sin in us. Zacchaeus also did the same and was delivered of the miserable life he lived. Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water. Hebrews‬ ‭10:22‬
  • Keep His Word – Soon after Zacchaeus accepted his shortcomings and transgressions before the Lord, we see an immediate change of heart taking place in himHow was that possible? Because somewhere deep in his heart he loved and adored Jesus. Zacchaeus had heard quite a lot about this Teacher before, and that’s how his love for Him grew. Now, on meeting the Saviour, he obeyed God’s Word by restoring everything that he had taken unjustly from people. Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. John‬ ‭14:23‬
  • Fellowship in communion – By partaking in the Lord’s table/having communion, we become partakers of eternal life. He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him. John‬ ‭6:56‬. Flesh here refers to the Bread/Word of God. Jesus said – I am that bread of life. John 6:48. When Jesus called Zacchaeus, who was on the sycamore tree then, he obeyed and quickly came down and welcomed Him with great joy. That day he had a close communion with Jesus and became a new creature in Christ.
  • Waiting for Him – Zacchaeus waited patiently upon the sycamore tree, to see Jesus when He passed by that way! 😇 He was a little man, yet his “little stature” could not stop the deep desire he carried within him — to see Jesus. And Finally… !! Not only was he able to see Jesus, he was even able to welcome Jesus into his house that day!! Hallelujah!

Dear child of God, those who wait upon God will never be ashamed. They will go from strength to strength and appear before God.

May the Lord help us! Be blessed! 💕

Why You Must Make a Decision about God


Leah Adams


Today I want to get personal with you and yes, put you on the spot. I want to ask you a question that you MUST answer. The answer to this question is a matter of life and death. Before I ask the question, however, permit me to give you some background.

In Matthew 27 we find Jesus standing trial before Pilate. Christ has been betrayed by Judas and arrested by the Roman soldiers. He is now facing Pilate who thinks he holds Jesus’ fate in his hands. Unbeknownst to him, what Pilate really holds in his hands is his own fate. As Pilate is sitting on the judge’s seat with Jesus standing nearby, he asks a question in that should cause each of us to stop and think. It is doubtful whether Pilate truly understood the magnitude of the question, nor did he understand that he was making a decision that would affect his soul for all eternity.

Matthew 27:22 (NKJV) provides us with Pilate’s question. “What shall I do, then, with Jesus who is called Christ?” The immediate answer that came from the people was to crucify Jesus and that is exactly what happened.

Today I want to ask you, “What are you going to do with Jesus, who is called Christ?” There are only two answers to this question. You either accept Him as Lord and Savior of your life or you reject Him as Lord and Savior. There is no ‘I’ll think about it later’ option. If you choose to ‘think about it later’, then you have rejected Christ. Do you understand the implication of choosing to reject Christ? We are never told anywhere in the Bible that Pilate became a believer in Jesus, but let me assure you, if he continued to reject Christ as Savior, a split second after he passed from this world, he became a believer in Christ. Unfortunately, at that point, it was too late. He had made his choice in this life and he discovered that in the next life the consequences of that choice were not pleasant. Eternity in hell—everlasting torment—total rejection—complete aloneness—utter abandonment.

What if you choose to accept Christ? Is that the end? Absolutely not. Once we accept Christ as our Lord and Savior, we must then decide how we will answer that same question on a daily basis.  “What shall I do, then, with Jesus who is called Christ?”

Do I put Him in a ‘Sunday’ box and pull Him out when I go to church?
Maybe I interact with Him when I am in church and also call on Him when I am in trouble?
Do I let my friends know that I am a follower of Christ?  If I do, I’ll be different. I won’t be like everyone else.
What if someone makes fun of me?
What if I don’t fit in?

Every day Christians decide how they will answer the question, “What shall I do, then, with Jesus who is called Christ?”

Do I spend time in Bible study or do I let my Bible gather dust on the table?
Do I get alone with God in prayer and really get to know Him or do I turn on the TV or radio to fill the silence?
Do I go to church or do I go to the golf course or grocery store?
Do I make a choice to not watch television programs and movies that are inappropriate or do I watch them and think, ‘That violence, bad language, or sexual content doesn’t really affect me’?
Do I listen to uplifting, Christian music or do I listen to music that does nothing to encourage me in my Christian walk?
Do I choose to clean up my language or do I allow filth to spew from my mouth?
Do I encourage and support other Christians or do I have the attitude of ‘I don’t want to get involved’?

Hear Jesus’ words in Matthew 10:32 (NLT), “Everyone who acknowledges me publicly here on earth, I will also acknowledge before my Father in heaven.”

Again I ask you the question that you must answer.  “What shall YOU do, then, with Jesus who is called Christ?
