Gospel of Peace

The Lord has come to bring peace and He has done so. He has reconciled us with God so that we can stand before Him assured of His love for us through the forgiveness of sins. He has enabled us to love our neighbors as ourselves, forgiving them as He has forgiven us. He has established us as the people of God with whom He is well pleased.
         The peace of God has begun in us and it is spreading out from us. The gospel of Jesus is a gospel of peace. As the enemies of Christ are subdued beneath His feet, the peace of God spreads further and further. Let it begin with us, having peace with God and peace with one another but let it never end, as for the kingdom of our Lord and of His peace, there shall be no end.
