Friendship Missionary Baptist Church is a gathering of Christians

located in Fort Myers, Florida


Suddenly, the angel was joined by a vast host of other–the armies of heaven–praising God and saying, “Glory to God in highest heaven, and peace of earth to those with whom God is pleased”

(Luke 2:13-14 New Living Translation).

Most of the nations of the world profess to be seeking peace. Yet the world is in a continual uproar as the result of armed conflicts. The world seems bent on self-destruction through war, crime, and violence. To this world in which we live, the words of the angel, “And peace on earth to those with whom God is pleased,” seem to represent an unattainable dream

Some leaders of the nations are seeking peace through conferences, summit meeting, and diplomatic effort, and this is good. But true peace can come only when all mankind yield their individual lives to the Prince of Peace. While statesmen negotiate peace at the conference table, let us as followers of Christ, sow the seed of peace in the hearts of those we encounter each day.

The world around us seems to be enraged about almost anything imaginable, but God has promised that the individual Christian can enjoy in his or her heart the peace that passes all understanding.The Christian can stand as an island of calm in a sea of confusion by giving his or her heart to the Prince of Peace and trusting fully in Him. This Christmas season and at all times Jesus offers the great invitation: “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you, and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light” (Matthew 11:18, 29).
