'From the overflow of the heart, the mouth speaks' (Jesus, Luke 6:45)
From the overflow of the heart, a nation is at war with another nation... a family with a family... a husband with a wife... a brother with a brother...
War spills up and over from the heart of mankind. World War is an extension of individuals at war with truth. We have the same essence of 'World War' at work within our own streets, our own homes, our hearts and minds.
If war on a world scale comes ultimately from the 'heart condition' of all the individuals within it, I ask you:
Is your heart right with God? World Peace, will come from Individual Peace - when mankind is right with God.
Jesus calls us to 'repent' of our sin. What this means is to recognize that we are sinful - full of selfishness, greed, envy, lust, vengeance, violence - and to 'turn' from this sin. Jesus then calls us to put our faith and our trust in him. What this means is to recognize that Jesus is God, that he is Truth, and to commit our lives to him. Have you repented of your sin? Have you come by faith through the 'door' of Jesus Christ?
