Peace should never be the end goal for the believer, but a result of a goal. Look at Jesus as an example: the founder and perfecter of our faith who for the joy set before him endured the cross (Heb. 12:2). The goal was obedience and glory to God the Father. The result was glory, honor, joy, and peace.
A faith that has no growth will not do.
Self-denying humility ought to show up in the way we worship together.

Jesus is no talisman. Crucify "Jesus as key to your personal achievement" and he will stay dead. But the real Jesus achieves a victory greater and far superior to any wish-dream of any man.
