100 Days of Preaching the Gospel #43 | with Daniel Whyte III
TEXT — John 16:33: “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.”
Peace is perhaps the most sought after thing in the universe. Nearly everyone wants to have peace in the world and in their lives. omeone once said, “Peace on earth — which man throughout the ages has so longed for and sought after — can never be established, never guaranteed, except by the diligent observance of God’s order.”
To find true peace, one must get it from God through Jesus Christ. The world we live in will always be rocked by turmoil, disaster and upheaval. Therefore, true peace must come from Someone who has overcome the world. And, as John 16:33 tells us, Jesus Christ is that Someone.
During our last time together, we looked at three aspects of this God-given peace. Today, allow me to share with you the remaining three things that people need in order to have peace in their lives.
1. To have true peace in this life, one must have freedom from death and the fear of death.
2. Secondly, to have true peace in life, one must have freedom from loneliness.
3. Thirdly, and finally, to have true peace, one must have the hope of a permanent and pleasant home.
