Tuesday 20th May – Tuesday of the 5th week of Easter
Reflection: John 14:27-31
THE PEACE OF CHRIST
The peace of Christ is a promise and an assurance that Christ gave unto His disciples before He left the earth and it is this peace that all Christians have been called to enjoy as one of the benefits of following Christ.
This peace, says Christ, is not as the world gives. It sustains us through the ups and downs of life. Every Christian should operate on this level of peace such that even when everything seems disorderly and clumsy, we have that assurance that all will eventually turn out for our good (Romans 8:28). It is this peace that makes us suffer joyfully for the sake of the good news hoping to inherit the kingdom of God. It is also this peace that makes us rest assured in Christ, submitting all to him.
Beloved, irrespective of what you are going through, irrespective of the situation of your life; take hold of this message and let the peace of Christ reign in your life. Let the peace of Christ empower you as you hear Him whisper to your heart: “behold, all is well.”
Prayer: Heavenly father, I submit my whole life to you today that I may gain your peace. Amen.
HIDE A TREASURE: “They strengthened the believers and encouraged them to remain true to the faith.‘We must pass through many troubles to enter the kingdom of God’ they taught.” Acts 14:22 GNB.
KNOW YOUR FAITH: YOUCAT 93 – Why was Christ transfigured on the mountain?
The Father wanted to reveal the divine glory of his Son even during Jesus’ earthly life. Christ’s Transfiguration was meant to help the disciples later to understand his death and Resurrection.
Readings for today: Acts 14:19-28; Psalm 145:10-13, 21; John 14: 27-31
