Do You Have Peace in Your Heart?
One time I was trying to witness to a man I knew well. He was what you’d call a self-made man, comfortable in his status in life. He was standing in front of his house. We had a friendly conversation, but when I broached the subject of Jesus he said, “Oh, I’m fine like I am. You see that house? It’s paid for. My wife loves me and I love her. I have my retirement income. I’m doing quite well.”
I said, “Sir, may I ask you a question?”
“Well, sure,” he answered.
“Don’t say that lightly. I want you to think, then answer me honestly.”
“Do you have peace in your heart?”
“I told you, I’m fine.”
“No, you said you would answer the question. Do you have peace in your heart?”
His chin began to quiver. His eyes brimmed with tears.
“No! I don’t have peace. How did you know?”
“Because the Bible says ‘There is no peace, said my God, to the wicked.’” Without the saving life of Jesus Christ and the indwelling Holy Spirit, you cannot have true peace. It is only found in the wonderful name of Jesus.
Do you have peace with God? If you don’t know the Lord Jesus Christ, I invite you to pray a prayer like this: “Dear Jesus, I need You. I’m a sinner. I’m lost I don’t want to die in my sin and go to hell. I need You, Jesus. I trust You, Jesus. I believe You’re the Son of God. You paid for my sin debt with Your shed blood on the cross. Thank You, Lord, for doing that. Thank You for saving me. Now give me the courage to make it public. In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.”
