Called to Peace

Peace was the Advent theme last week. Our pastor’s sermon was titled “People in Pieces Can’t Be People of Peace.” I’ve had to ask myself, does that describe me? I have to admit, many times it does! I get stressed out over the sorry state of the world. Division bothers me, whether in relationships, religion or politics. And, there’s the pandemic, which ebbs and flows on the CDC charts and never seems to end. Lord help us, because peace among us begins with peace within us. “Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace” (Col. 3:15, NIV).

  2. Satan takes away peace……or tries to! This morning on notthebee.com, someone posted a gif with John 3:16…..and I replied: “So, if God so loves all people in the world, why in the world would anyone who knows God not love everybody else that God so loves???” To be peace makers without being doormats is difficult, but is one way we can show love! Thanks for your peaceful post!
