And the Angel of GOD said unto him, Take the flesh and the unleavened cakes, and lay them upon this rock, and pour out the broth. And he did so. Then the angel of the LORD put forth the end of the staff that was in His hand, and touched the flesh and the unleavened cakes; and there rose up fire out of the rock, and consumed the flesh and the unleavened cakes. Then the Angel of the LORD departed out of his sight. And when Gideon perceived that He was an Angel of the LORD, Gideon said, Alas, O Lord GOD! for because I have seen an Angel of the LORD face to face. And the LORD said unto him, Peace be unto thee; fear not: thou shalt not die. Then Gideon built an altar there unto the LORD, and called it JEHOVAHSHALOM: unto this day it is yet in Ophrah of the Abiezrites. (Jdg 6:20-24)
Because He loves this world, GOD calls all to a covenant relationship with Him through repentance and faith in His finished and perfect work on the Cross of Calvary. Those of us who have received Him and been born again are at peace with GOD through Jesus Christ, and are called to service and becoming Christ-like as we grow in Him and fellowship with Him. Those who have His great Salvation and love Him because of His forgiveness and reconciliation toward us are not licensed to sin more, but are called to holiness and His righteousness. He is with us and in us, and the new life we live in Him by His grace is His life in us that we live by faith in Him and for His glory.
GOD, who is our peace and worthy of all worship, has work for us to do. His Church, which we who are His are members in particular, are His servants, His disciples, and His witnesses. We are called, each of us, no matter our condition or place in the body, to serve Him and minister to those around us who are hurting and in need, as He provides and guides us who are obedient to His Word. We are commanded, as members one of another, to disciple one another in His Word and in the love of Christ. We are commissioned to go into this world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit that is within us, and as we go, to testify of His grace, mercy, justice, and judgement, that those who hear and believe the Good News of peace and reconciliation with the Father might have life in His Name.
For GOD is not willing that any should perish, but that all would come to repentance and the knowledge of the the Truth. Jesus loves you and wants to establish a covenant relationship with you that is real and personal. Surrender to Him on His terms and He will give you a brand new life of discipleship and fellowship with Him that is abundant and everlasting. GOD calls you to trust Him and what He has already done for you to pay your sIn debt. He has provided the only way of reconciliation with GOD, forgiveness from GOD, and Salvation through Jesus Christ, the Son of GOD who is GOD the Son, to give you a new life in Christ. Turn away from yourself and your sIn and turn to Him alone for eternal Life, now and always.
