TOPIC: THE TRUE PEACE TREATY

Read: Colossians 1:19-23
19. For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell;
20. And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.
21. And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled
22. In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight:
23. If ye continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel, which ye have heard, and which was preached to every creature which is under heaven; whereof I Paul am made a minister;

MEMORISE: For it pleased the Father that in Him all the fullness should dwell, and by Him to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross (Colossians 1:19-20)

EXPOSITION
A peace treaty is an agreement between two or more hostile parties, usually countries or governments, which formally ends a state of war between the parties. A treaty’s content usually depends on the nature of the conflict involved. There have been many false peace agreement throughout human history. Perhaps, the most famous one is the so-called “Peace in Our Time” that Neville Chamberlain “secured” with Adolf Hitler, prior to World War II.
Mankind and everything in the universe are brought in unity and harmony under Christ. It does not mean, however, that all people are reconciled, irrespective of their wills/volitions. But as many as receive Him, to them He gives the right (power; authority; audacity; privilege), to become children of God, to those who believe in His name (Jn. 1:12). This verse depicts clearly that the saving faith is an attitude of life. The person who rejects Christ’s offer of reconciliation remains an enemy of God (Jn. 3:16ff). For those who believe in Him, it is essential for them to continue in the faith and maintain a persevering faith in Jesus, as Lord and Saviour (Col. 1:23).
Are you at peace with God? If you believe in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, you can be sure that God is at peace with you. If not, you must repent and believe, today, if you want to find peace with God. He is ever waiting to restore you and accept you back home to His love. His justification brings reconciliation and PEACE.

PRAYER POINTS
1. O Lord my God, give me the grace to maintain a persevering faith in Jesus, to the end.
2. Father, all those that are yet to reconcile with You, touch their hearts to repents and accept You as their Lord and Saviour.
3. Holy Spirit, please convict all members of our churches, and even ministers, that are yet to reconcile with You, let them come to You with the heart of repentance.
