Peace on Earth

On this Remembrance Day weekend, we think of the sacrifice made by so many for the freedom that we enjoy in our county.  I am reminded as well of the sacrifice that Jesus paid so that we might have peace. There is only One who can bring peace into our troubled lives.  Jesus said:

 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you.
Not as the world gives do I give to you.
Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.
John 14:27 ESV

For there to be peace among the nations, in our county, in our communities and in our families, it has to start in the hearts of individuals.  It has to start with me.  And you.  Will we allow the King of Peace, Jesus Christ, to reign in our hearts?


Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me.

  1. My husband and I have been delighted to see that the poppy is starting to catch on in the US as a sign of remembrance (he is from the UK and it has been a tradition there for decades). There is hope for all of us.
