Peace Reloaded

Scripture

“But seek first the kingdom and its righteousness, and all these things shall be yours as well” (Matthew 6:33).

“Let what you say be simply ‘yes’ or ‘no’; anything more than this comes of evil” (Matthew 5:37).

Sermon Notes

Key definition: Peace is harmony and tranquility derived from awareness of your relationship with God; the more you understand your relationship with God, the more peace expresses through you.

What does it mean to be a peacemaker? A peacemaker is one who has the ability to say “peace” to the turbulent waves of thought and have them obey. A peacemaker is one who reduces to peace and harmony all the thoughts of strife, anger and retaliation in his own mind. How Do You Reload Peace?

Point #1 – Peace of mind is available to each human being in direct proportion to each human being’s desire for it and initiative in achieving it.

Point #2 – Fame, fortune, success, good health, power, and all other such attributes are “things.” The kingdom is where peace dwells. And where peace dwells, all things can be achieved.

Point 3 – When the roar in our minds tries to overpower us with force, our disarming mechanism is our ability to become still, to quiet the mind, to curb unruly emotions and feelings, and to say no to all else but peace.

Point #4 – Peace of mind results when one stills the stormy seas of the mind.

Point #5 – Rushing the restoration of control over your mind can create more inner conflict.

Point #6 – It behooves all of us to get on with the job of transforming misunderstanding into understanding and to pay everything we have, and give everything we have, and do all the mental, physical, and emotional work necessary to achieve the pearl of great value, peace of mind.
