Store up for yourselves treasures in Heaven
where moth and rust cannot destroy and thieves cannot break in and steal

Christians Want Peace?

What do you think of when you contemplate the offer of peace that Jesus gives to us who are His disciples? Isn't it often something personal?
Inner peace?
The ability to walk through the storms of life and not be devastated by them?
I do. I mean, that kind of peace is very real and certainly welcomed in times of suffering and loss. I wonder though if Jesus didn't mean much more than that.
I think that much more than inner peace. for those of His spiritual family Jesus wants, no, more than that, demands Kingdom peace.
A society of peace.

For Jesus, Kingdom peace was a very big deal, “On earth as it is in heaven.” I think that Jesus would not be satisfied with anything less than Christians working for love and justice and peace in the family, the community, the world every single waking moment of our lives, Just as He did during His time on earth.
