Waiting for Peace

As believers, we live in a state of expectation for Jesus' return. This morning I was wondering what it must have felt like long ago to wait for a Messiah who had not yet come. Living under oppression and opposition, they sought a Messiah King, a righteous ruler who would smite the Romans and bring peace to the nation of Israel. Jesus did come to bring peace, in fact He was peace. But His' peace was a little different than what they expected.

"Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not let them be afraid." (John 14:27)

Open your heart to Him, and may the deep peace of Christ be with you.
