Peace Be with You
In the weeks leading up to the birth story of Jesus, we await the coming of Jesus, the “Prince of Peace” (Isaiah 9:5). At Christmas, we hear the angels announcing, “Peace to those on whom his favor rests” (Luke 2:14). At the beginning of his ministry, Jesus promised, “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God” (Matthew 5:9). And at the Last Supper, as a parting gift, he said, “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you” (John 14:27).

Throughout his life, Jesus worked tirelessly to remove the obstacles that keep us from knowing peace with God, peace in our hearts, and peace with each other. Then on Resurrection Sunday, he announced that the promise had been fulfilled. Every obstacle to peace has been removed! Now Jesus stands before us as a forgiving Savior, not as a vengeful judge. He stands before us offering us his peace.

Let his words sink into your heart. Let the truth behind them find a home in you. “Peace be with you” is so much more than a pleasant greeting. It’s a promise and a gift from almighty God!

Yes Lord. Let it be so in my life. Amen.
