The Promise of Peace
I like this little reminder from poet, T. S. Eliot: “An election is coming. Universal peace is declared and the foxes have a sincere interest in prolonging the lives of the poultry.” Real peace, lasting peace, cannot be voted into office. The Lord Jesus offers us something better in John 14:12: “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you; I do not give it to you as the world does. Do not let your hearts be distressed or lacking in courage.” You want peace? Put your faith in a man who keeps his promises, The Lord Jesus Christ.
