How you can find peace in a world full of conflict

October 22, 2013

“I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”

John 16:33

In 1919, when the first World War came to an end, many people called it, “The war to end all wars.” Just after, an organization called the League of Nations was formed, and many thought there would never again be war in the world because all disputes would be handled within the League.

Well, just the opposite happened. Within 22 years, many of the League’s members had left and Word War II was underway. The organization had failed in its objective to keep peace because it couldn’t force goodwill upon its members.

And even though the League of Nations was replaced by the United Nations, problems persist today. Wars are being fought daily. Crime, poverty, and injustice are rampant all over the planet. So how could we ever have peace in such a violent and harsh world?

Peace is attainable… but not the kind you might be thinking. God’s peace comes from His presence in your life. And you can have that peace in your soul even with so much conflict going on around you. All you have to do is trust in Jesus. Because no matter what happens in this world, in Christ, you’ll always be able to say, “It is well with my soul.”

TRUST FULLY IN CHRIST, AND YOU’LL EXPERENCE REAL PEACE NO MATTER HOW MUCH CONFLICT SURROUNDS YOU.

Get the best from 2012 to be your best in 2013


Dear Friend,

While many pastors shy away from addressing controversial issues, I sincerely believe you need to hear straight, “bulls-eye” biblical teaching on many of today’s hot topics. Not only to grow in your faith as a believer, but to give winsome, compassionate answers to the hard questions our culture is asking.

That’s why I want to send you a special new resource today – my CD series called The Best of 2012.

This series contains 10 of my most popular and compelling messages from 2012, and it’s a resource that’s sure to help you in 2013 because it includes messages such as, “Are All Religions the Same?”, “Lessons on Leadership,” and “What Is a Christian?”

The Best of 2012 is my gift to thank you for your donation to help PowerPoint continue to proclaim God’s Word and truth ’til the whole world hears. So please request your copy when you give today.

Thank you!
