There will Never be Peace on Earth

There will never be unity among all people because our hearts are evil.

“The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” Jeremiah 17:9

Peace and unity can only take place if there is change. And that change can only happen if each of us has a changed heart. And only God can change our hearts.

If each one asks God Almighty to forgive him for prejudice and hatred of others, then the Lord will forgive us. If we invite the Holy Spirit into our lives and ask Him to change our hearts, maybe the possibility of peace on earth will become a reality today.

We must allow Him to control us so His Love reigns in us. Change can begin if we let the Lord Jesus work in the deep recesses of our hearts, minds, and souls.

For God, Creator and Maker of the Universe, loves everyone, which is why He sent His Son as a Sacrifice for our sins.

Be honest. Look in your heart. Have you ever wanted to hurt or get back at anyone? Seek a little vengeance? All of us have some evil in us, even if it’s just a little. Our hearts are wicked.

Ask the Lord Jesus to forgive you of your bad thoughts and sins. Invite Him into your heart to change you. Then and only then can true peace and unity begin on earth.

Change my heart oh God.

Make me be like you.

Because you Lord are the only One who loves all people.

Amen.

    So true. Great post and well said.

    Thank you for your post “no peace on earth – never peace on earth”. Though Jesus, God’s Son, is the Prince of Peace, there is no promise in the Bible that He will establish world-wide peace in our time and age. Peace is an attitude of heart, not the absence of war or dispute.
