Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 09/28/14

This week’s scripture is from Luke:

Jesus Christ 4“Peace be with you.”   (Luke 24:36b)

Where does our peace come from? It does not come from the world. The news of the world is disturbing. Wherever we turn, we hear of strife and suffering. The world is not at peace. We seek peace, but even in our own lives we face troubles and difficulties that distress our hearts within us. Conflicts arise; illness or death visit our lives; we receive disappointing news; we suffer hardship. Our peace is fleeting.

Yet there is One who is the Prince of Peace, and the peace He brings is a peace that is beyond our circumstances, beyond all troubles, and beyond our understanding. When we trust in Him, His peace will rest upon us and bring us peace. He will take up our sorrows and our burdens, for He is the Lord of Peace.

May the peace of the Lord attend your way each and every day.
