Grace and Peace

Grace and Peace

Inspiration MinistriesBy Inspiration Ministries2 Minutes

The book of Revelation may be full of mysteries, but it opens with a simple, practical promise: God desires that we experience the fullness of His grace and peace.

The promise of grace means that God desires to give us His abundance and favor in every situation, benefits, and bounty. He also wants us to have peace – having perfect rest and calm, trusting Him absolutely, allowing Him to take away every worry and fear.

These promises were important for early believers as they faced difficulties. But they are still important today. We can have peace, for He knows the present and the future. He is, and was, and is to come.

Throughout this passage, we see the many ways in which Jesus provides a perfect example. He is “the faithful witness,” always obeying the Father. He is “the ruler of the kings of the earth” (v. 5). And the message repeated throughout Revelation is that He is the King of kings and Lord of lords. Because of Him, we are freed from our sins.

We can be sure that He is coming again, for “behold, He is coming with the clouds” (v. 7). When He returns, He will make everything right, for He is the perfect judge and jury. He is the Alpha and the Omega. He is beyond time. And He is with us wherever we go.

No matter where you on your journey, receive His peace and grace.
