                                 (GALATIANS 5:22-26)



TWO MISCONCEPTIONS ABOUT PEACE

  1. Peace is not avoiding a problem.

  2. Peacemaking is not appeasing another person for the sake of peace.



I. WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS ABOUT PEACE

  1. We can have peace with God through Christ (Romans 5:1).

  2. God helps us to have peace in the home (I Corinthians 7:15), in the church (I
    Corinthians 14: 33), in the world (Romans 12:18) and with each other.

  3. Believers are urged to “keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace”
    (Ephesians 4:3).



II. WHAT PEACE CAN DO

  Peace can replace worry, anxiety, hostility and stress.



III. YOU NEED THREE KINDS OF PEACE

  1. Spiritual peace (Romans 5:1)

  2. Emotional peace (Colossians 3:15)

  3. Relational peace (Romans 12:18)

BECOMING A PEACEMAKER

  P – Plan a peace conference

  E – Empathize with their feelings

  A – Attack the problem not the person

  C – Cooperate as much as possible

  E – Emphasize reconciliation not resolution



                                       John 14:27

     Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world
  gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
