"Pursue peace with all men..."

- Hebrews 12:14

Today is 9/11. It will remain one of the most well-known dates in American history. Ever since Cain slew Abel mankind has been in constant conflict. The book of Romans describes men without God as “being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, malice; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit… without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful.” Whether you look back to Genesis 4 or presently to what just happened in El Paso or Midland/Odessa, mankind remains in great need of a Savior, the Prince of Peace who is the only One who can resolve the conflict. The Jews and Gentiles were in constant conflict but it is written, “For He Himself is our peace, who made both groups into one… that in Himself He might make the two into one… thus establishing peace.” Every day and every year man proves his need for a Savior. Are you at war with God, yourself and others? Only Christ can remove that continual conflict in your life. And right now by placing your faith in Him, Jesus will resolve the conflict, be your Savior and bring you peace. Be encouraged!
