- “I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.” -John 16:33
- “Turn away from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it.”
OBSERVATION: When we look at the world around us, it is often daunting to contemplate the possibility of world peace. But God calls us to be salt and light and ambassadors in our world and to minister to those in our path. We are called to use our Christian influence in powerful ways in the context with which we live.
PRAYER: Father, today we pray for peace in our world. We know that it is an incomprehensible goal for man, but all things are possible for You. Make us your instruments and help us to find ways to speak truth in love to situations that bring about peace. Help us to be peace”makers” and not simply peace“keepers.” Give us boldness to stand up for injustice and lead us in Your Way everlasting. Amen.
