“The Peace Coming From God”
2nd Sunday of Advent
Ohhh, December na..Things happen and times have changed so fast in so many ways…NOW – we have talked about some pretty powerful and significant things like : God is still on His throne; That He is in control; That He can be trusted; That He is our help; That He is great and He is good AND – when we remember those truths among other things…We will not fear, we will trust..We will not worry and instead we will pray.
And for the past eight months, we also talked about how we do not want to miss the opportunities that are not only within the current difficulties that we now face but opportunities that are within every difficult circumstance we have ever faced or will face in our future.
And allow me to remind you again to: don’t miss the opportunity to grow in your faith, remember you do not just have to GO through this, you can still GROW even through this hard times; that you do not miss the opportunity to deepen your relationships, and that you do not miss the opportunity to show the world the beauty of our Christ and His church through our daily living; and of course, our response needs to be as simple as stay safe, stay healthy and keep the faith.
But it is a sad reality that even those who are deep in the knowledge of God’s truth STILL feel uncomfortable when unexpected situation happens, fear struck even to the most spiritually-deep person and scramble for the next opportunity that comes his way when no immediate solution is on sight.
And today, as we reflect on His words, I say “PEACE BE UNTO YOU…”
