Powerful Peace
I have told you these things so that in me you may have peace. John 16:33
The word “peace” is spoken numerous times throughout the Biblical Christmas story. Another form of that word might be “do not be afraid.” Peace seems like the last thing we would possess amid angelic appearances in obscure places. The shepherds at least had shepherds, but Zechariah and Mary were there alone. Peace? Yeah peace. Peace is real and its presence is one of calm, confidence, and consequence. Peace has to do with presence. It’s the awareness and anticipation of God’s presence with us. It’s not where you are but who you’re with that matters. That’s why when we’re someplace without the Someone who loves and keeps us that we are somewhat rattled and troubled trying to live this life without Him. Peace is the fruit of His presence and power in our lives. Does it seem that way to you?
