The way of Peace

I am deeply challenged by the following quote today:

"We who were formerly no people at all, and who knew of no peace, are now called to be...a church...of peace. True Christians do not know vengeance. They are the children of peace. Their hearts overflow with peace. Their mouths speak peace, and they walk in the way of peace." - Menno Simons 

Sadly, we don't see this playing out in the church all the time, but it is a stark reminder of how we should live ..... at Peace with one another and with the world around us.

Isaiah 59:8 -  The way of peace they do not know; there is no justice in their paths. They have turned them into crooked roads; no one who walks along them will know peace.

2 Thessalonians 3:16 Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with all of you.

May you be at Peace today:
with your friends and family,
with your community,
with yourself,
and with the Lord.

Living in Grace
