Words of wisdom for today

The Faith once delivered to the saints.

“I could take you today to a million villages … they got a church. Or they got a synagogue. They got something. They got a house of worship. The church is the biggest organization in the world…. And I came up with a thing called the P.E.A.C.E. Plan. When Jesus sent the disciples out, he said, ‘When you go into a village, you find the man of peace.’ Now this person doesn’t have to be a Christian…. You find the person of peace, and then you begin to do the P.E.A.C.E. Plan … Now why am I telling this to you? Because we’re going public with it this next year in 2006…. And I believe it will change the world.” Rick Warren*

(Jud 1:3) Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.

Men will call peace, peace and there will not be peace. This is something that has been saught by man for hundreds, even thousands of years and has yet to be found. Why is this true? The fact is that until all men acknowledge the Lord Jesus as Lord and Savior there will be no peace. The best thing you can do is go back home and start preaching and teaching the word of God to your people. I say this to all the Rick Warren’s of the world.

When people have been brought to the foot of the Crosss and acknowledge Him as savior, then through the indewelling power of the Holy Spirit they will find peace with God. Peace with God is more important then peace between men. Peace treaties have a way of being broken. Peace with God and the Peace of God (two seperate ideas here) have a way of coming into stay. Once you have made your peace with God “Rom 5:1 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:”. Which follows faith in God by having acknowedge Him as your personal savior After you have done this you not only will have made peace with God, but you will have the peace of God.

(Php 4:7) And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

If these people will just go back to the churches that they have and start faithfully preaching and teaching the word of God instead of starting movements, I can guarantee eternal results. I have said before that it is better to have a church of 300 people that are being taught and nurtured through God’s Word, then 1,000 members, most of whom never get taught and nurtured in the Word. 300 members in a church and 275 of them saved and growing is better then 1,000 members with only 275 actually saved and growing. I am not impressed with this new concept of what a church should be doing. The church is walking away today from it’s God given responsibility to build up believers in the faith.
