‘People’s desires make them give in to immoral ways, filthy thoughts, and shameful deeds. They worship idols, practice witchcraft, hate others, and are hard to get along with. People become jealous, angry, and selfish. They not only argue and cause trouble, but they are envious. They get drunk, carry on at wild parties, and do other evil things as well. I told you before, and I am telling you again: No one who does these things will share in the blessings of God’s kingdom. ‘ Galatians 5:19-21
‘for the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. ‘ Romans 14:17
The real thief of peace is self-centeredness and pride, The only real answer to self-centeredness and pride is surrender and humility.
When our thought life is sinful, negative, and rebellious, it leads to sinful, negative and rebellious
behavior which robs our peace and joy.
What areas of your thought life are you allowing to rob your peace and joy? What behaviors are you allowing to rob your peace and joy?
Would you be willing to confess those sinful thougths and behaviors and allow the Peace of God come in and give you a peace that surpasses all your understanding?
