The following is another attempt to use the goggle of Faith to weigh and filter various thoughts from conversations under the sun, on another blessed day. Gracious Reading!
- The measure to which the peace kept in the gospel of Christ has become a commodity in our souls, can always be traced to how lowly at heart we are, or how naturally we can esteem others better than ourselves (Phil. 2:3-4).
- The more we can see things through the eyes or light constituted in Christ and God, the more tangible God’s righteousness would become – and the more peace of mind we would have. The more Christlike we’ll also become and the more we can end up becoming sons of God (Isa. 11:3, Ps. 36:9, Isa. 26:3, 1Tim. 3:16).
- Most thoughts that trouble the peace of our mind are mostly informed by expectations that aren’t born out of God’s righteousness; expectations that are self-seeking or that don’t place God first (Ps. 85:8, Matt. 6:33).
- Being carnally minded or thinking like unbelievers and carnal believers do, will cost you much more than you can imagine! It will rob you of attaining life and peace (I.e. Christ), or of inheriting the Kingdom of Christ and ultimately the actual Kingdom of God (Rom. 8:6, Eph. 5:5).
- To deliver a soul from living in the sight of men and bring it into an estate of peace that is found in Christ, is to quicken it to a place where it can naturally live in the sight of the Lord or by the Spirit of the Lord (Lk. 4:18, Hos. 6:1-2, Isa. 11:2-3).
- The peace found in Christ is a spiritually tangible commodity. If you don’t have it, the world will harass you with thoughts of what is happening to (or through) others but not to you. But when we do, we would harass the world within and without us (Jn. 14:27, Rom. 11:26, 1Tim. 6:12).
- If the actual need of man was money, then Jesus would have come with the gospel of money. He rather came with the gospel of peace (or of Christ) because that was the first estate or inheritance that Adam fell short of; one where money becomes a servant to those in possession of this gospel (Ps. 84:11, Eph. 2:17, Lk. 2:14b, Matt. 6:33).
- As we come into a threshold of peace that the word of Christ offers, we would find it difficult to process self-seeking thoughts that are inferior or contrary to that of God’s righteousness and find it easy to interpret rightly inspired thoughts – or to do righteousness (Col. 3:12-16, Phil. 4:6-9, 1Jn. 3:7).
