CAME TO BRING DIVISION
"Do you think I came to bring peace on
earth? No, but division." Christ categorically said that He came not to
bring peace but division. This peace is the worldly kind of peace. Christ
declared that there will never be peace between worldly people. No peace
between worldly husbands and worldly wives, between worldly parents and
children and between worldly nations. For such worldlings, God sends
division, intrigues, wars and conflicts.
"My peace I give you." Now, what
is this kind of peace? It is spiritual peace. It is the peace that God gives
to those who love Him. It is said that there is only one thing that unites
men and that is the love of God. But there are a million things that divide
men. There are as many reasons for quarreling as there are quarrels.
