Let Us Therefore Follow

EDITOR’S NOTE:

(1)  My great-grandfather’s analysis of divorce rates in Christian homes might have been accurate in his day (he retired in 1945 and died eleven years later).  In 2014, however, his analysis does not apply.

(2)  This is a sermon from World War II, hence the reference to war and peace in the third section.

Rom. 14, 19

I.

Much is said of peace in the Scriptures.  God is author of peace, not of strife.  He implanted the love of peace in the human heart.  The prophets had a beautiful vision of the reign of peace, foretold the coming of the Prince of Peace.

II.

Jesus is the Prince of Peace.  It is his legacy to the world.  “Peace on earth, good will to men.”–“to men of good will.”  “Peace I leave with you.”  “Let the peace of God rule (arbitrate) in your hearts.”

(1)  Peace rules in the Christian house.  Prayerful homes not broken by divorce–almost never.

(2)  Christian principles help nations live together in peace-e.g. Canada and the U.S.  If they can, why not others also; yea all others?

III.

Christians today [are] much concerned that we shall have a permanent peace after this war.  They insist that all of us do something about it now, that we let our Congressmen and Senators know we want to U.S. to unite with other nations to prevent war.  Maybe this is God’s way of helping to banish war.  What a great blessing it will be.

Let God’s people speak out now, lest we get there too late with too little.
