There has to be making of peace on earth. What that means is that Jesus has to be shared on earth. In the Garden of Eden, when Adam decided that he didn’t want to fellowship with and receive from God, he gave the earth over to the devil. God sent Jesus to take back what the devil stole, meaning that the peace that is in Christ is not automatically in the world unless those of us who are Christians share Jesus (peace) with non believers in the world. The challenge comes here in that we as Christians want to try to adopt the counterfeit peace that the world generates. That is carnality and is does not work.
Romans 12:18 teaches us that we are to live peaceably with all men. That means that the love of Jesus should be evident in all of our interactions with others. We have to deliberately MAKE peace on earth. (Psalm 34:14) When you do this the world will recognize that something is different about you than the average person. Some in the world will ask you what makes you different and this is the opportunity to give glory and credit to God. Someone may just come to Jesus because of the peace that you manifest when you get fired from work, mistreated by colleagues, lose your house, encounter sickness, etc. I believe manifesting the peace of God allows you to hear from God clearer as He gives you wisdom and direction for whatever challenge it is that you are dealing with.
