COMING CLOSER TO CHRIST:
What does Christ mean by peace? Not what we usually think: “Not as the world gives do I give it to you.” Christ’s peace is lasting. It is interior peace of heart, which overflows into families, communities, our entire world. · It is the peace that comes from knowing without any doubt whatsoever that we are loved by Christ. · It is the peace that comes from knowing without any doubt whatsoever that whenever we offend him, he will always be ready to forgive us. · It is the peace that comes from knowing without any doubt whatsoever that we have a purpose in life, a mission – the very mission that Christ himself has given us: to spread his Kingdom.
Sometimes we act out of fear, of thinking that we don’t have a choice. A Christian strives to live rooted in peace, making decisions that are based on love and not of fear or anxiety. This week, find a way to root our decisions in love and peace.
