He Became Our Peace
In the Sermon on the Mount Jesus taught His followers to be peacemakers; He went so far to say “blessed are the peacemakers” (Matthew 5:9). We are called by Christ to be at peace, to make peace and pursue peace.
By dying on the cross Christ became our peace. His sacrifice made it possible for mankind to enjoy peace with God. His death made a relationship with God a reality, thus giving us the abundant life promised by Jesus. (John 10:10)
We needed peace because our sins and transgressions separated us from God (Isaiah 59:1-2) God is holy and cannot look upon sin, He hates sin but loves the sinner. Jesus Christ took our sin debt to the cross; unlike the animals offered in the Old Testament He became the sacrifice for sins.  When John saw Christ he declared, “Behold the lamb of God that takes away the sins of the world”. (John 1:29)
Praise God for His gift of Peace! Our hearts need to be filled with joy and gladness that it is possible for mankind to have peace with God.  
I remain your brother, friend and servant,
Bobby L. South
