“Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts.”
Written by Kit Densley on November 25, 2020
I recently had the chance to talk to Pr. Scott Sharrock regarding the strange times that we find ourselves on the verge of re-entering. In times of difficulty and uncertainty, it’s easy to find ourselves questioning God. Why is it that bad things happen to good people? What do we do when we find ourselves pushed up against the rocks? How should we respond to situations that have become dire through no fault of our own?
Colossians 3:15 says “Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts.”
2020 – A Harsh Tutor
If there’s one thing that this year has taught us all it’s that life can change quickly. For many of us, this year has been a harsh tutor. It can be hard to face the potential realities of closed borders, restrictions and once again, a shortage of the ever elusive toilet paper. As Christians, it is important to remember the strength and peace that comes from our relationship with Jesus.
Complacency is dangerous. Life can often strike you down when you least expect it. There is great strength to be found however in the habits and rituals that you perform. Just as the Bible says to build your house on the rock, so too should you look to build your lives on a solid foundation. History has a way of sorting out the wheat from the chaff. As time winds on, that which is no longer necessary or pertinent is lost. How great then, are the teachings of the Bible to have outlived the might of Empires? Take comfort in the teachings and wisdom of Christ’s message.
What do you believe?
God is the great provider, for both our everyday needs, and our everyday comfort. Each day is filled with countless little decisions and the choices you make can be the difference between hope and despair.
So at the core of each of them, let Christ’s light and comfort guide you. For even in the midst of the greatest uncertainty can his wisdom guide us, his right hand will hold us fast.
