BILLY GRAHAM DAILY DEVOTIONAL MESSAGE
Billy Graham Daily Devotional 4th May 2023, Thursday Inspirational Daily Reading
TOPIC: Everlasting Peace
SCRIPTURE: But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ. For he is our peace . . . — Ephesians 2:13,14
Meaningless mouthings about peace will not bring it to the world. In Glasgow, Scotland, we watched the Communists march around St. George’s Square carrying their banners with the words, “Our motto is PEACE!” My thoughts raced back to Korea, where I had seen the havoc and suffering caused by these people who now use “peace” as their motto.
Peace is more than five little white letters painted on a piece of red cloth, carried by a goose-stepping zealot in a Red parade. It is not a mere cessation of hostilities, a momentary halt in a hot or cold war. Rather, it is something positive. It is a specific relationship with God into which a person is brought. It is a spiritual reality in a human heart which has come into vital contact with the infinite God.
Listen to Billy Graham’s short message on peace.
Prayer for the day
Your everlasting peace transcends the promises of mankind, Lord Jesus.
