How many have heard someone say, “I have everything a person could ask for – a fine home, a great family, money in the bank.What more could I ask for?” Too many put their faith and concentration on the ‘things’ the world can give them. They do not give a thought to what is coming in the future. They do not consider what will happen when it is time for them to leave this world. They may honestly think they are happy, that they are at peace. They do not realize that money and the things of this world will never give true peace.. ONLY CHRIST CAN DO THAT! “27 Peace I leave with you,My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” John14:27 (NKJV) Christ knew there would be people who would confuse the peace this world gives, and the peace which only comes through a personal relationship with Christ. Only He can give you eternal peace and happiness. The things of this world will all pass away when Christ returns. Only His eternal love will remain for always. I know several people who, while not ‘rich’, they are what would be considered ‘well-off’. Most wil tell you that they do not have time for peace or happiness.They are too bust trying to get more and more of the things this world consider important. The only thing which we need to consider important, is how we will spend eternity. We have nothing, and neither do these so-called ‘rich’ people, which was not given to them by God. All things serve His perfect will. The trick is to know that, no matter what imay be happening, God is in control. There will always be those who think they have done everythong themselves. The devil is a great liar, and his tricks with thoughts and words leasdmany down the wide,easy path. He knpws God is in control,but, just like man, he fights against it. He honestly believes he is above God, better than God, even though he knows the truth. He will do his best to take as many of the world with him, to his eterrnal fiery home. But the peace and love of Christ is the only true peace. Only Christ can give us eternal peace and happiness. When we place our trust and faith in Him, we will receive the rewards He has promised us, as children of Almighty God. We know where we will spend eternity and the rewards of our Heavenly Father can never compare to anything this world has to offer. All that will pass away.We have all heard that ‘you can’t take it with you’. Christ love and peace is eternal and will never pass away. THAT WE CAN AND WILL ‘TAKE WITH US’!
