6 Jesus said: Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. - John 14:27 Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God - Matthew 5:9

7 Names and titles of God in the Bible So Gideon built and altar to the L ORD there and called it The L ORD is Peace -Judges 6:24

9 Names and titles of God in the Bible So Gideon built and altar to the L ORD there and called it The L ORD is Peace -Judges 6:24 Peace = ‘Shalom’ Also translated ‘safe, prosperity, success, good health, peaceful, blessing, secure, friendly relations, well-being’

Being a peacemaker in the world around us

11 Our receiving God’s peace, just as Gideon did Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. - John 14:27 God’s promise Our active response

12 Our receiving God’s peace, just as Gideon did Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. - John 14:27 “So today, take a moment and consciously ask Jesus to give you peace in the inner sanctuary of your life. Study this incredible promise – Jesus gives you his peace, so receive it! Take hold of this supernatural peace and let it overcome your fears.” - Rachel Hickson, ‘Pathway of Peace’

13 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. - Philippians 4:6-7

14 My first reflection is an entirely personal one. If God is such a loving Father, who watches over all the details of our lives as we trust ourselves into His hands, why do we worry? I have preached quite often on the famous words of Jesus: “So do not worry, saying, “What shall we eat?” or “What shall we drink?” or “What shall we wear?” For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. … Steve Thomas thomas/13/still-need-saviourhttp://www.saltlight.org/europe/blogs/steve- thomas/13/still-need-saviour

15 I have still battled with fear and anxieties this year – in our personal and family situations, with my health issues, with ministry and leadership challenges. I might have expected to be “further on” spiritually by now, mightn’t I? All this shows that I am still human, and still get pressed back into God at every turn, and this does me good! It is not bad for me, but my prayer for 2013 is that I may walk, personally, with a greater sense of daily peace and serenity, precisely because I am confident in my Father’s love and care. I need to keep going and growing in this. This is surely a journey for us all, too. Steve Thomas thomas/13/still-need-saviourhttp://www.saltlight.org/europe/blogs/steve- thomas/13/still-need-saviour

19 Transmitting God’s peace Blessed are the peacemakers …As I spend these first few days of 2013 “up the mountain” in the presence of God, I find that this is my heart cry, over and over. I pray for all the churches in our Salt and Light family, that God would make us clearer and more effective in our goal to proclaim and demonstrate in every way possible that Jesus is the Saviour of the world, and the Saviour of souls, and that 2013 may be a much more fruitful year in this regard than ever we have seen before. need-saviour - Steve Thomas
