In this message, pastor Bogdan Kipko reminds us that the desire for peace is something God has planted within all of our hearts, but there is much more to peace than an absence of conflict. Through the gospel, we learn about God’s heart for peace in his creation. God’s peace is about the complete restoration of our souls rather than the removal of all obstacles; he calls us to partner with him in it. As we study the gospel, we discover the very peace we long for is what God longs for as well. He longs for us to be complete in him, safe in him, perfected in him, and at peace with him. This is the reason Jesus Christ came to earth and walked among us: so that we would find a refuge of hope and peace, even while living in a world filled with despair, conflict, and unrest.
Let's get ready to find hope in Jesus, by listening to this message.
