Advent of Peace
God put a longing for peace in our hearts (Isaiah 65:20-25) and we may experience this peace in a number of ways.
- Peace with God (Romans 5:1)
- Peace with others (Romans 12:17-18)
- Peace within us (John 14:27, Philippians 4:6-7)
We as followers of Christ should follow his example as peacemakers and as bringers of life. This doesn’t mean being a doormat to others but we must make a decision to humble ourselves and share the peace that Christ came to give us (1 Peter 5:6-7). In our own lives we need to accept the peace that God offers and take it to heart. God did not save us from death for us to live in anxiety, fear and despair, He gave us life that we might truly live!
