John’s response is powerful and thoughtful. Perhaps, though, there is an equally powerful lesson hidden within his initial response
What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me—practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.
Jesus desires our spiritual success so much that he gave his life for us. He is able to save to the uttermost those who draw near to God through him.
Our trust is in our “forever” Lord and in our “everlasting” rock.
This is a time of plentiful opportunities to share the love of Christ with others.
Perfect peace is simply a product of putting one’s trust in God—full stop.
It’s so hard to guard our hearts when the things we want most in life feel just out of reach.
We can still shine in His eyes.
In the midst of a pandemic it’s great to be reminded of what God has in store for his family. I’ll just let God’s Word do the talking with no commentary from me.
Pray without ceasing.
