Dear Friend in Christ,
“Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.” (Col 3:15)
The world longs to be in peace and harmony, even if the opposite often seems to be the case. Alone, we are limited in our ability to bring that peace to the entire world. However, the first step to achieving this requires us to make a personal choice to allow the peace of Christ to take root in our hearts. As a result, each person who welcomes this encounter to take place is no longer working on their own, but has become connected to every other member of the one body, gradually building up peace in the world.
Do not be discouraged by the seemingly formidable task ahead. Rather, embrace the hand of peace offered to you through Christ and share your gratitude for this gift with each person you meet. Soon many will be attracted to Christ’s peace and allow Him to rule in their hearts as well.
Today, we thank God for strengthening the Body of Christ by gifting us with His peace.
Have a thankful Thursday and please remember to send us your prayer intentions.
