The Shoes of Peace #4 of 4

July 9, 2009
Some think peace is just the absence of conflict. But God can give us inner calm even when the world is topsy-turvy. Jesus knew His disciples would face extreme trials. Most would die as martyrs after suffering great persecution. The peace He left them is one of the weapons in the armor of God, a weapon we're told to wear as shoes. So, how's your peace today?

Living With Your Passions
In a hyper-sexualized culture, sex is either reduced to pleasure-seeking or conflated with our identity. But God designed us as sexual beings for emotional and spiritual intimacy whose highest calling is to worship Him. In this revised edition, Pastor Erwin Lutzer draws on forty years of ministry experience to present a rationale for sexual purity. He gives an honest answer to the sexual pressures we face like extramarital relationships, self-gratification, same-sex attraction, and more. As desire-driven creatures, we don't have to pursue happiness at the expense of character. With our identity grounded in Christ, we can live victoriously with our passions.

Taking the gospel of peace to a world under Satan's dominion: that's a sure way to find yourself immediately at war. The devil sets his sights on any believer obeying the command to take the gospel to another person. Only by having the peace of God within, can that believer withstand the attacks of Satan from without. Today: more from Paul's teaching on the armor of God - our equipment for victory.

"Peace I leave with you...my peace I give unto you...." The words of Jesus are very dear when circumstances get tough. The peace of God is unlike any kind of peace we can get from the world. God's peace is there even when it seems all hope is lost. And this peace is a great defense when the devil is on the attack. Today: making sure we have the peace Jesus promised.

Inner calm: it's great when everything around you is a swirl of conflict. In trying times, peace is what we need. And peace is much more than just a sense of well-being. Its basis is what Paul calls "the gospel of peace," good news that gives us assurance of a future that will transcend our daily stress. Are you experiencing the peace of God today? If not, listen with us.

It's one thing to believe that the righteousness of Jesus can be credited to our account before a holy God. But it's another to put that knowledge to use when we find ourselves sinning every day. The devil keeps accusing us of falling short of God's standards. Today: some practical ways to wear "The Breastplate of Righteousness."

In some religions, the idea is: do as many good works as you can. At your judgment, you hope the good works outweigh the bad. Believers can rejoice that Jesus bestows His personal righteousness as a gift on those who are His. God sees our sins through the perfection of His Son, and can legally declare us as righteous as He is. This stops the devil in his tracks.

Inside, we all know that the slightest sin separates us from the white-hot purity of God. And we all commit sin. Satan the accuser points to us as Christians to say "Look at you. You sinned again. You have no right to stand before a holy God. Give up...there's no hope, you'll ever see heaven." But there is one way to stop his foul mouth cold. Today, you'll learn what it is.

Go to any bookstore. There you'll find a plethora of authors spewing outright lies about the God revealed in the Bible. Whether it's about witchcraft, New Age spirituality, or pseudo-science, these books seek to muddy the clear waters God has given us in scripture. The onslaught is fierce, and we need a good defense...a defense like "The Belt of Truth" as revealed in Ephesians.

It's as old as the Garden of Eden: Satan whispering lies into our ears, lies about the nature and character of God. We're all born with a propensity to believe those lies, lies that tell us that disobeying God is the path to true freedom. Before you bite into that apple, listen for a way to guard against falling for the devil's falsehoods.

Like it or not, we're all in a spiritual war. We can either succumb to Satan's devices, or, wear God's armor and fight. The Apostle Paul revealed the weapons of the armor of God in the book of Ephesians. And the first weapon we've been given is "The Belt of Truth." Today, we'll find out why we need this weapon, and, how to best use it.

The peace of Eden's garden was shattered when sin entered the world. Down through the ages, the damage continues to mount. As believers in Jesus, our eyes have been opened to the reality of a spiritual war that never stops. Satan is determined to thwart God's work in your life, and in mine. His plan, however, is destined to utterly fail. And you and I have a part in winning this war.
