This is the third Sunday of Advent, and today we are focusing on peace. If you listen to the news, you know our world lacks peace.
Not only is our world lacking peace, but many of our homes are lacking peace.
When things in my life would get difficult, my Mom would always remind me of John 14:27. I still quote this verse often!
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.
Christ came to give us peace. Let’s seek peace.
Here are some other scripture verses that remind us to cling to peace.
“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7
“These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world, you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
“You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.” Isaiah 26:3
“When a man’s ways please the LORD, He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.” Proverbs 16:7
When this world seems like it is spinning out of control, Christ says, I will give you peace.
I don’t know what you’re struggling with today, but Christ wants to give you peace! Peace in your heart, peace in your marriage, peace with your children, and peace in your home.
