Week 3 - GUIDED to PEACE

Monday, the third week of Lent - KNOW PEACE is written by Ed Arle

Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Chirst.

Romans 5:1


I've seen the signs: "No Jesus, no peace. Know Jesus, know peace." I like that. I also like what I heard a preacher say once: "If Jesus is not real, nothing matters. If Jesus is real, nothing else matters."

So is Jesus real for you? I know we all have to answer that question for ourselves, but, I don't think that by ourselves we can come to the right answer. That's why the Spirit of God in Jesus guides us to the cross to show us through faith what happened there. Jesus died there. But then look again. Jesus isn't on that cross anymore, and neither are we.

Jesus died, but then rose again, and then, justified by faith in him, we rise with him. That's why when we approach the cross of Jesus, there's always an invitation to see what's behind the cross - Easter.

Know Jesus, know peace.


Dear God, the greatest gift in all the world is knowing Jesus is real, and through your loving Spirit you make him real to me too. Amen.
