Peace

People around the world are building peace because they do believe that there can still be peace on earth.  Actions include: stopping violence, saving lives and healing their own communities. These are the greatest challenge we are facing nowadays. Now, the question is Do we still believe in peace? Conflict is one of the reasons of having no peace. It may lead to trouble and might cause of hurting someone else. Conflict arises because of individual difference, cultural difference, clashes of interest and social change. We should be aware of what is going on in this world. God let this happen and allows us to make things right and do in our most own way. God wants us to live peacefully and calmly. He did not create us to create trouble or mess things up. God loves His creations. Why don’t most people have this peace and abundant life that God planned for us to have? God is calling us. He wants us to hear Him and to stop violent acts.  This page will show you the steps to peace with God from the book of ministries with its corresponding verses about peace. Use this to help enlighten and change actions from our wrongdoings to positivity.
