Everyday Advent – Peace

Everyday Advent Series Week 4

I think we often consider peace to be rest and stillness, the opposite of a chaos and war.

Peace is possible in our homes and churches when everyone has their part to play and we work together in harmony with one focus.

Because Christ pursued peace with me, I feel responsible to pursue peace with others. The bible talks quite often about being people of peace, those who are to seek peace and pursue it relentlessly. We are commissioned into the world to be peacemakers and peacekeepers.

But here’s my question for the day… do we make it easy for people to make peace with us?
