Do Not Worry

Jesus Christ commands us not to worry, not to be concerned about tomorrow because we cannot change anything by worrying. He says that our Heavenly Father knows what we need and He will freely give it to us, He will supply in all our needs because He takes care of the birds of the heavens, He will also take care of His children. Jesus gives peace beyond all understanding to those who obey Him, but as it is written: There is no peace for the sinner.

The sinner has a reason to worry even though he is a believer. Jesus said He will never leave us, He will never forsake us, but He also said that if we deny Him, He will certainly also deny us. If we make God our refuge, if we live for the kingdom of God and we obey the commands of Jesus then we can pray with confidence and we can trust the Lord and know that He will answer our prayer, that He will take care of us. But if we disobey Him and we live selfishly for ourselves, if we have no business with God, if we don’t care for Jesus Christ and for His kingdom then we have reason to be worried. It is only when we are in obedience to Jesus, in Christ, that He gives us peace beyond all understanding, no matter what our circumstances are, because He is in control.

They once came to Jesus and told Him about a tower that fell on people, the Tower of Shiloam, and they were killed, and Jesus said to them:”If you do not repent you will perish likewise.” There is no peace for the sinner, no peace for the person who disobeys Jesus Christ, he has reason to worry not only about his current situation and what is happening in the world, the uncertainties, the anxiety that is destroying so many people. It is because of sin, it is because of not obeying Jesus. They do not have Jesus and therefor they do not have peace. If we obey Jesus then we have no reason to worry, then we can have confidence, and His peace will be in us and with us. If we sin and disobey Him that peace will leave us.

Do you want that peace that Jesus gives, that peace beyond all understanding? Then obey Him obey the gospel of Jesus Christ, live in obedience to Him. Repent and be baptized in water, obey His commands, live holy and righteous and Jesus Christ will give His peace in you. He will give his Holy Spirit in you, He will reveal Himself to you and you will be in peace even though this whole world is falling to pieces, because God is in control. But He looks after those who take Him seriously, those who are for Him. If God is for us, who can be against us, but if we are against God then we are without the protection of God. Jesus said that He will never leave us He will never forsake us, but if we deny Him, He will certainly also deny us. If we do not take Him seriously and we do not obey Him, in our day of trouble, we will call on Him and He will not answer, because when He called we did not answer, we were not interested in Him. If we deny Jesus, He will certainly also deny us but if we seek to please Him, if we live for Him and for His kingdom, then we can rest at ease, we can be at peace, because He fills us with His peace that passes all understanding, then we need not worry.

Are you worried? Are you concerned about tomorrow, about the future, about what is happening in the world, about what could happen? Obey the gospel of Jesus Christ and He will give you peace beyond all understanding. He will give you peace that you cannot find anywhere else because He takes care of those who trust Him and who obey Him.

May Jesus bless you.
