DAILY DEVOTION


HI!

Most people use CORDLESS PHONES nowadays.
And, they probably use them TOO MUCH.
Thus, they have very little PEACE.

When I want genuine peace, I use a
PHONELESS CORD and talk to Jesus!

LIGHT from the WORD.

The Scripture above is a prayer, by Paul, for the church
at Thessalonica.

There are three terms there we should look at critically:
PEACE, GRACE, and THROUGH JESUS CHRIST.

PEACE
Paul prays, "the LORD of peace Himself give YOU
peace ALWAYS by all means."

It is through Christ's PRESENCE in our lives that we have peace.
Because true inner peace comes by knowing Christ as Lord!

GRACE
Grace from God is totally by HIS initiative!
It is His favor, turned toward a person.

BY GRACE we are saved! (See Eph. 2:8-9)
Grace also flows from God to the saved, to SUSTAIN them
through all the difficulties of life. (See Col. 1:16)

THROUGH JESUS CHRIST
Notice that both peace AND grace come THROUGH Jesus!
God's love, His power to have consolation, hope, comfort and
encouragement in our lives, come THROUGH Jesus!

May God's PEACE and GRACE be with you ALL
THROUGH Christ Jesus!

Love ya!
