Episode 161: The Peace Plan Day 17

Deuteronomy 24:10-15 (NLT) 10 “If you lend anything to your neighbor, do not enter his house to pick up the item he is giving as security. 11 You must wait outside while he goes in and brings it out to you. 12 If your neighbor is poor and gives you his cloak as security for a loan, do not keep the cloak overnight. 13 Return the cloak to its owner by sunset so he can stay warm through the night and bless you, and the Lord your God will count you as righteous. 14 “Never take advantage of...


Episode 160: The Peace Plan Day 16

Psalm 41:1 (NKJV) 41 Blessed is he who considers the poor; The Lord will deliver him in time of trouble. You may have heard of the blessings Jesus spoke of in His Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5:1-10). Here’s a “blessing” from the Old Testament that is less well-known: “Blessed is he who considers the poor” (Psalm 41:1). The Hebrew word translated “considers” means “to take thought for others.” The word translated “poor” means “those in need.” There are many people around us who are...


Episode 159: The Peace Plan Day 15

Proverbs 29:7 (NKJV) 7 The righteous considers the cause of the poor, But the wicked does not understand such knowledge. The year was 1780, and Robert Raikes had a burden for the poor, illiterate children in his London neighborhood. He noticed that nothing was being done to help these children, so he set out to make a difference. He hired some women to set up schools for them on Sunday. Using the Bible as their textbook, the teachers taught the poorest children of London to read and...


Episode 158: The Peace Plan Day 14

1 Peter 4:10-11(NLT) 10 God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another. 11 Do you have the gift of speaking? Then speak as though God himself were speaking through you. Do you have the gift of helping others? Do it with all the strength and energy that God supplies. Then everything you do will bring glory to God through Jesus Christ. All glory and power to him forever and ever! Amen. We often ask what is the most important...


Episode 157: The Peace Plan Day 13

Titus 1:5-9 (NLT) 5 I left you on the island of Crete so you could complete our work there and appoint elders in each town as I instructed you. 6 An elder must live a blameless life. He must be faithful to his wife, and his children must be believers who don’t have a reputation for being wild or rebellious. 7 A church leader is a manager of God’s household, so he must live a blameless life. He must not be arrogant or quick-tempered; he must not be a heavy drinker, violent, or dishonest with...


Episode 155: The Peace Plan Day 11

Matthew 20:28 “The Son of Man did not come to be served. He came to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many people.”


Episode 156: The Peace Plan Day 12

2 Timothy 2:2 (NLT) 2 You have heard me teach things that have been confirmed by many reliable witnesses. Now teach these truths to other trustworthy people who will be able to pass them on to others. Notice the generations here. Paul says I gave it to you, Timothy … Timothy, you’re to give it to reliable leaders … and they’re supposed to give it to other people. There’s 4 generations in that verse—Paul, Timothy, reliable leaders, others. Friends, that’s what The PEACE Plan is all...


Episode 154: The Peace Plan Day 10

1 Peter 2:12 (ICB) 12 People who do not believe are living all around you. They might say that you are doing wrong. So live good lives. Then they will see the good things you do, and they will give glory to God on the day when Christ comes again.


Episode 152: The Peace Plan Day 8

1 Timothy 4:12 (NLT) 12 Don’t let anyone think less of you because you are young. Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity.


Episode 153: The Peace Plan Day 9

Hebrews 10:24 (AMP) 24 and let us consider [thoughtfully] how we may encourage one another to love and to do good deeds, “A word of encouragement from a teacher to a child can change a life. A word of encouragement from a spouse can save a marriage. A word of encouragement from a leader can inspire a person to reach her potential.” — John C. Maxwell One of the great things about encouragement is that you don’t have to be brilliant to encourage people; you just have to have a heart for...


Episode 151: The Peace Plan Day 7

Our natural tendency is to hate our enemies or at least to avoid them at all cost. But if you run from conflict, you’re going to be miserable most of your life. Jesus calls us to a higher standard. He calls us to be peacemakers — not peacekeepers. There’s a huge difference. Peacekeepers avoid conflict and pretend it doesn’t exist. But peacemakers resolve conflict and reconcile relationships. 18 And those who are peacemakers will plant seeds of peace and reap a harvest of righteousness....


Episode 150:The Peace Plan Day 6

Matthew 18:21-35 (ICB) When the US Civil War ended in 1865, more than half a million soldiers lay dead, the economy and infrastructure of the nation was shattered, and people remained deeply divided politically. The observance of Mother’s Day in the United States began with the efforts for peace and reconciliation of one woman In 1870, named Anna Reeves Jarvis. The daughter of a Methodist minister she began in her community a day called “Mother’s Friendship Day” in an effort to reunite...


Episode 149: The Peace Plan Day 5

“Search for peace, and work to maintain it” (1 Peter 3:11 NLT). Today I want to help by giving some practical advice about how to help during a time of relationship conflict and that is to emphasize reconciliation, not resolution. It’s unrealistic to expect everyone to agree about everything. Reconciliation focuses on the relationship, while resolution focuses on the problem. When we focus on reconciliation, the problem loses significance and often becomes irrelevant compared to the...


Episode 148: The Peace Plan Day 4

“First get rid of the log in your own eye; then you will see well enough to deal with the speck in your friend’s eye” (Matthew 7:5 NLT). OK, so this week we so far we have been focusing on reconciliation and mainly we have talked about reconciliation between man and God but today I want to talk about reconciling our relationships with each other. If you’re serious about restoring a relationship, begin with admitting your own mistakes or sin. Jesus said it’s the way to see things more...


Episode 147: The Peace Plan Day 3

2 Corinthians 5:18 (NLT) 18 And all of this is a gift from God, who brought us back to himself through Christ. And God has given us this task of reconciling people to him. Your mission is simply to pass on to others the same Good News about God’s love that somebody told you. But God doesn’t expect you to fulfill your mission on your own. He gives you other Christians to support you. In fact, evangelism is something you can do as a small group. God has given us a wonderful example of this...


Episode 146: The Peace Plan Day 2

Matthew 28:18-20 18 Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. 19 Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. 20 Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Jesus’ last assignment to his disciples was impossible. There was no way they could possibly take the Gospel...


Episode 144: God's Promises Philippians 4:6-7

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. - Philippians 4:6-7 We all worry. But for some, worry defines and dominates every waking thought. Imagine being able to live with a peaceful, quiet mind. In Jesus, it is possible. Just as Daniel slept peacefully in the lion’s den, we can be free...


Episode 145: The Peace Plan Day 1

2 Corinthians 5:19-20 (NLT) For God was in Christ, reconciling the world to himself, no longer counting people’s sins against them. And he gave us this wonderful message of reconciliation. 20 So we are Christ’s ambassadors; God is making his appeal through us. We speak for Christ when we plead, “Come back to God!” The greatest thing you can do with your life is to tell somebody about Jesus and invite them to come to know him. If you help somebody secure their eternal destiny that they...


Episode 143: God's Promises Philippians 4:19

And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.- Philippians 4:19 In Christ, we understand more fully the lengths our Father will go to meet the needs of His children. The Bible promises that from the wealth of His glory in Christ, God will supply our every need. He sent His one and only Son to seek and save the lost, die for our sin, and resurrect victoriously from the dead. So, we are not positioned as beggars or thieves but as sons and...


Episode 142: God's Promises 1 John 5:14-15

This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him.- 1 John 5:14-15 Why can we pray with such a high level of expectation? First, God is our Father. If earthly fathers give good gifts to their children, how much more will our heavenly Father give us good things? Secondly, if God has given us Christ, why would He withhold from us any good...
