The City of Peace (Galatians 3:6-9)

Pastor Aaron Ude, April 3, 2016
Part of the Sunday Sermons series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

Did you know if you were a resident of Jerusalem they have phone apps to tell you if and when a rocket or missile is coming down near you? Does that sound like a peaceful place to live? Yet that is what Jerusalem was often called by God’s people in the Old Testament - the city of peace. Did you notice what the second part of that word is? Jeru- salem. Salem which means peace.
And yet Jerusalem has been destroyed and rebuilt and captured by different armies and fought over for millennia, so how is that a city of peace? Because just as the temple, that would be worthy of God and would allow people to come to God to find grace and help, was not a temple of stone built by men, so the city of peace, the true Jerusalem, is not a city of stone walls built by men, it is a city built by the king of righteousness. Abraham was blessed to be an inhabitant of this city and so are you. ( click on link above or go to sermon page for rest of sermon)

Galatians 3:6-9

6Even as Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness. 7Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham. 8And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed. 9So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham. (KJV)
