The Peace of Christ

 Peace … pax … frieden …amani … paz … pokój.  Regardless of the language we use to express this fundamental desire of the human heart, it seems that God’s peace can be as elusive as sparks darting about in stubble.  And yet we recall that Christ’s first words to his gathered followers after his Resurrection were:  “Peace be with you.”

Violence is the enemy of the Peace of Christ. It rears its ugly head in many forms:

Physical           Emotional/Psychological          Sexual/Gender     

Economic     Cyber Bullying      Stalking        Domestic    

Political/Institutional        Cultural/Religious

With the unmitigated, senseless, and pernicious violence in our world today, may we turn to Scripture to pray for peace in our world, our nation, our families, in ourselves and within all faith traditions/ Peace starts with you and me and it is sustained by prayer. May we set aside time to pray these passages from the word of God so that we may enter more deeply on our own journey away from violence and into the peace of Christ.

  • “And I will grant peace in the land, and you shall lie down, and no one shall make you afraid.” Leviticus 26:6
  • “Peace, peace to the far and the near, says the Lord; and I will heal them.” Isaiah 57:19
  • “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives.” John 14:27
  • “And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:7
  • “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called the children of God.” Matthew 5:9
