Jesus advocates peace

Jesus says, “Bless those who curse you.” Wouldn’t that be an interesting policy?

Jesus says, “Do good to those who hate you.” Following Jesus is much harder than most people think.

“Love your enemies.” If Jesus really means that, we’ve got a long way to go.

Jesus says, “Blessed are the peacemakers.” Perhaps we should pay more attention to them.

You can experience much more inner peace by trusting God than you can by trusting human governments and politicians.

Some thoughts are promptings from God, others provocations from the devil, and some expressions of self. Use discernment.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
