Peace

I know how difficult it is to be at peace; the world batters us each day with many distractions and evil is in our face almost constantly. I contend we have to accept the gift of peace Jesus offers us. If we don’t accept it, evil wins; and I know evil does not win! God is in charge of all things, and ultimately, He, and good, will prevail. I am convinced of that!

I love that Jesus gives us His peace. I love also how He tells us not to be troubled or afraid. He is, by saying this, defining peace. When we are troubled (worried) or afraid, we are not at peace. Though people and things of this world may offer us temporary relief from our troubles and fears, they are no equal to the peace Jesus gives us.

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” John 14:27
