A Legacy of Peace

on November 10, 2003

So Jesus said to them again, “Peace to you!”
As the Father has sent Me, I also send you.”

JOHN 20:21

Did you ever think that when Christ was dying on the cross,
He made a will?
Perhaps you have thought that no one ever remembered you in a will.
If you are in the kingdom, Christ remembered you in His.
He willed his body to Joseph of Arimathea; He willed His mother to John,
the son of Zebedee; and He willed His Spirit back to His Father.
But to his disciples He said, “My peace, I leave that with you;
that is my legacy. My joy, I give that to you.”
“My joy” – think of it. ” My peace” – not our peace,
but His peace! …
…No judge or jury can set that aside.
Christ rose to execute His own will.
If He had left us a lot of gold,
thieves would have stolen it in the first century;
but He left us His peace and His joy for every true believer,
and no power on earth can take it from him who trusts.
A great many people are trying to make their peace with God,
but that has already been done. God has not left it for us to do;
all that we have to do is to enter into it, to accept it.
D.L. Moody, late 1800's
