18 Oct Luke 10:6 (Peace be with You)
Posted on Monday 18 October, 2010
If a peaceful person lives there, your peace will rest on him; but if not, it will return to you.
Luke 10:6 (full readings
Rich’s Reflections: Peace is not to be found in the world (John 14:27), in others, or in ourselves. Peace is not the result of human effort. Peace is a gift of Jesus and can only come from Him. We receive the peace of Christ when we turn from pride and selfishness, and walk in the path that Jesus has shown us. If one were to live as an authentic Christian, everything that one intends, thinks, and does would be in tune and harmony with the will of God. This is the source of Christ’s peace; the removal of moral conflict within one’s heart that comes from denying ourselves and accepting God’s will. May the peace of Christ rest on you and be with you always.
