No Peace Treaty With Sin
I believe one of the strangest verses that ever fell from the lips of Jesus was this: “Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword” (Matthew 10:34
That’s incredible, because Isaiah 9:6 calls Him the “Prince of Peace.” And when He was born, the angels sang, “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men” (Luke 2:14
Jesus said, “Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God” (Matthew 5:9
). And yet in this passage, Jesus Christ said that He didn’t come to bring peace. What is He talking about?
I believe Jesus is telling us that He came with a sword to put a line of demarcation between Truth and error, light and dark, sin and righteousness. When God’s standard of righteousness is set, there will always be a division. Without righteousness there can be no godly peace. Peace can never come where sin remains. God will never make a peace treaty with sin—never!
