Chapter 1 The Fist Milestone “P”
According to (Joh 20:19) the opening phrase Jesus addressed to his disciples revealed the significant truth about the reestablishing of genial relation between the Holy God and fallen human race. As Jesus appeared among his frightened disciples, he said to them, “Peace be with you,” Till now this phrase conveys the foremost news of all ages; that is to say, the Almighty and Holy God has reconciled with his people. Alleluia, without seizing! Glory to our God forever and ever and on earth peace among people with whom he is pleased! (Luk 2:14)
“Peace be with you,” Jesus said again, “As the Father has sent me, even so I am sending you.” The Good News of God’s reconciliation with the human race had to be known to the spoiled world, and it was done through the ministry of reconciliation handed down by our beloved Savior to his apostles. Accordingly, the apostles have carried the foremost news all around, making the disciples of all nations and teaching them to observe all that he has commanded,” (Joh 20:21).
As any treaty demands good will and actions from both sides, so the reconciliation with God presumes our own step forward as well as God did. If until now we have not reconciled with God, take heed of what the apostle says, “Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God,” (2Co 5:20).
But for the rest, who have already been justified by faith in Christ Jesus, let them delight with the peace of God which surpass all understanding will guard their hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
“O Lamb of God, your glorious victory won the lost, graciously receive our prayers and grant us your peace with in.”
