The world says it longs for peace. There are peace signs, protests, and proclamations. Yet, there is little peace to be found, and it is short lived. As the pursuit for real, lasting peace continues, the lesson is underlined over and over that such a state requires a foundation of justice and genuine care for the welfare of mankind.
In the Kingdom of God is such a foundation, which is laid in the person of Christ.
He is the cornerstone that God has chosen.
Psalm 118: 22,23
The stone which the builders rejected
Has become the chief corner stone.
This is the LORD’S doing;
It is marvelous in our eyes.
People believe they know what makes for peace. They construct complicated treaties and agreements to attempt to create it, but by leaving out the state of the heart, which only God can repair, all efforts break down eventually.
This isn’t cause for despair, but for rejoicing, now that the Prince of Peace comes to reign within our hearts.
Bread and Peace
Bread was often a sign of peace since it was so often a part of the abundance of such times, and the fellowship of sharing a meal together. Bake some bread this season and offer it as a sign of peace.
