This Christmas, we can choose to stay unhappy and miserable because of life’s disappointments and uncertainties. But we do have another choice.
This gift of peace is not a dream, removed idealism, escapism, or wishful thinking. The peace of God, which is beyond all understanding, is more real and tangible than anything else in this world.
The Church is overflowing in ideas on how each of us can deepen in our relationship with Jesus Christ.
How can believers both recall a historical event, while also prepare for a future event, in which time and space as we know them will end? Is there a middle ground or a still point between the two?
God is our everything, and if this is not acknowledged, and it doesn’t lead us to worship, then we pursue other things that can never truly satisfy or hearts.
The disciple of the Lord Jesus accepts the Gospel as the authentic and everlasting Word of God. They do not compromise any of the teachings of Jesus Christ.
Our sentiment is not a moral equivalent to the Ten Commandments. Simply because we feel something, does not make it right (or wrong).
What we have not seen in the civic discourse is a serious discussion on peaceful. Will there be a peaceful transfer of power? Will there be peace? When peace becomes the emphasis, the shift and focus of efforts is drastically changed.
