Today's Scripture *February 3, 2009*
- Today's Scripture *February 3, 2009*2 Kings 9: 18-19So a horseman went out to meet Jehu and said, “The king wants to know if you are coming in peace.” Jehu replied, “What do you know about peace? Fall in behind me!” The watchman called out to the king, “The messenger has met them, but he’s not returning.” So the king sent out a second horseman. He rode up to them and said, “The king wants to know if you come in peace.” Again Jehu answered, “What do you know about peace? Fall in behind me!”The riders met Jehu and asked if he came in peace. But Jehu responded, " What do you know about peace?".Peace, properly understood, comes from God. It is not genuine except when rooted in belief in God and love for Him.Jehu knew the men represented a disobedient, wicked king.Don't seek peace and friendship with those who are enemies of the Good and the True.Lasting peace can come only from knowing God who gives it to us.Thank You Lord for giving us the gift of Your peace.May we spread Your love and precious peace to those around us.And help us to separate ourselves from those who represent disobedience.We need to love those around us and pray for them, but we do not need to befriend those who's intentions are against You.Thank You Jesus for Your Word to us. May we walk in It's Truth! In Your Name, Amen...Thank you for your prayers this past weekend as Ashley and I were out of town.We felt your prayers and appreciated each and every one.God bless you,April Please do not remove when forwarding
