Monday Musings (12/10/12)

Dear Church Family,

This weekend we talked about Jesus as our peace. Do you know the peace that Christ has come to bring? He has come to bring peace between us and the Father. He has come to bring peace between us and each other. He has come to bring peace between us and creation. How peace filled is your life? The Bible teaches us that the closer we get to God the more at peace we are. Even in the darkest times of life we know the peace that passes all understanding. This is because God’s ways are higher than our ways and God’s understanding is greater than our understanding. This week I encourage you to know Christ…your peace. Pray today to know that peace. Get into God’s Word today to learn of that peace. Fellowship today with other believers to share that peace. Christ our Savior has come that you might know peace. It is up to us to take the gift of peace that Christ offers. Amen.

Along the Journey,
Pastor Jude
